My knowledge of this is a little bit skewed, but I would agree with Washington, Detroit, and Nashville for certain. I am also a bit prejudiced and think that Pittsburgh is not too bad with this as well. They send their draft picks, particularly defense, to WBS. They also sign guys who are borderline AHL/NHL guys to two-way contracts to have depth in the system as well as guys who can compete and push the draft picks. If only, they could figure out how to prevent injuries.
