I don't know how you're drawing the inference from "the price of success" with "the idea that we will eventually become bad". That's not what I said. The Red Wings have been drafting low for years and have been one of the most successful franchises in the NHL. The Rangers have been drafting remarkably well over the last 6-7 years. It's possible to continue success without having top 10 draft picks. How many top 10's have the Jets had? The Panthers? We've got a good team in a place and a good organization for developing talent - particularly from 2nd round and beyond picks.
