Was Turning Down 4 1st Round Picks Wrong?

I think the issue is that the Leafs in their current form are in no position to succeed and contend for a cup. They need that elite center, they need a bigger line-up, consistent defending and a great goaltender.
These are all things people clutch onto. We don't have the #1 D-man we need, nor the #1 center, or the #1 goaltender. Unless we suck real hard and get Gringorenko there isn't an immediate solution besides maybe getting Gomez on the cheap and seeing if he works with KEssel and Lupul.
This time by and large seems to be set up to restart. Get the players people want, bide you rtime, then blow up the team and restock with good 1st round picks, turn them into good players, boom have a contending team. Toronto doesn't have that, nor the system right now. Can safely say that if we play the Rangers or even Panthers we'd probably be 4-0'd and everyone woudl be just as unhappy.
I would've preferred the 4 1st rounders because a lot of teams are still in the race and if you turn the players into top 20 picks you can come out of this draft looking amazing.
