Like I already said, you don't seem to grasp the nature of what a prospect is.
By the time they came over to NA at the age of 23, they were "can't miss" prospects. That's some seriously talented scouting. My point still remains. Had the Wings had any inkling of the talent those two players would develop, there's no way they would have risked leaving them until the 6th and 7th round. They lucked out on them, simple as that.
