Detroit with Hudler, Filppula, Kronwall, Howard, Helm, Abdelkader, Kindl, Emmerton, and Ericsson. That's nine players.
Philadelphia with Giroux, Read, van Riemsdyk, Rinaldo, Bobrovsky, Bourdon, Zolnierczyk.
Pittsburgh with Orpik, Kennedy, Letang, Engelland, Vitale, Despres, Lovejoy.
The Rangers have done remarkably well with Callahan, Del Zotto, Anisimov, Dubinsky, McDonagh, Girardi, Hagelin, Bickel, Sauer having all gone through their player development program that are currently on the pro roster.
That's just focusing on some of the top teams, not having looked at other clubs such as St. Louis, Dallas, Chicago, San Jose, etc.
I'm not 100% sure, but didn't Bergereon make the Bruins at 18? Del Zotto make the Rangers at 19? And Despres was in the Q last year? And JVR/Read came right outta college?
Also if your gonna count Rinadlo/Lovejoy/Engelland why would you not count Westgarth for the Kings?
