but saying they made it cause they had a top 5 pick or two (drafted by) is like saying they made it cause they had two goalies on their team... wake up dude! every single team in the league has a pair of goalies, just like every team has at least one top 5 pick...
you think we have a better chance of winning with a top 5 pick in our rank ?
Great, we have one... just like the NYR, Bruins, Panthers (Weiss), Pens, Flyers, Devils, Sens, Caps, Sabres, Jets (Kane), Bolts, Leafs, Canes and NYI in the East... and Blues (Pietrangelo), Canucks, Stars (Lehtonen), Wings (Stuart), Preds (Legwand), Hawks, Yotes, Avs, Sharks, Flames (Jokinen), Kings, Ducks, Wild, Oilers and B. Jackets in the West...
every single team
Sure every team has a top5 pick or more and these guys are usually the top players on their teams. Only one cup can be won per year but there is a lot of parity in the league exactly because star talent is well spread.
Right now Carey Price (5th overall) is our only top pick and our best player. We have the opportunity to add another ''star'' to the team. You compare it with goaltenders which makes little sense. Only one goaltender can play in a game and even then no team would pass the opportunity of getting a potentially great starter
Whats so hard to understand?
