other ex Ads who went on to be legit NHL players but arent really scorers include Fiddler, Smithson, Tootoo, and now Spaling
upshall and hall fit into this mold as well.

I think our main problem is we haven't sucked bad enough to get a top 3 pick in the draft and get the young stars, and when we draft, we usually know what we are getting in terms of the kind of player we draft-hard nosed, hard working kids. We don't take many chances on divas or basket cases. It is rare to find that kid with sick mitts and a goal scorers touch that is also willing to work harder than anyone else in the mid to late rounds. With scouting getting so much better, the datsyuks and zetterburgs are going to get rarer and rarer.

I don't know the answer to this, but who was the last player drafted in the 4th round or later to pot 40 goals? or even 30?
