Muckler's draft tenure would be marked by the departure of Jarmo Kekalainen and the entrance of Anders Hedberg until Pierre Dorion became head of scouting.

I know 2007 was before Dorion and Tim Murray. Not sure about 2002...Hedberg I assume, came in before the 02 draft.

I think the encouraging thing is since 2008 we've been heavy on defense, and it looks like we have two that will be surpassing 30 point regularly. Hell, Cowen may not be far off considering the offensive smarts he's shown.

I think it's safe to say we can be a bit more optimistic about our drafting now....not to say we can believe every player will turn into something...but more than you might think based on our history.
