Seeing as how we have six players still in the mix for varying degrees of contribution from the 2008 draft (having said that he was at the table for 2007 as well), I would say that your statement is pretty darn meaningless.

The fact that Sean Collins got a contract, at all, is fairly impressive.

Kubalik, Atkinson, and Calvert, along with Golo are from that single draft year. We have players like Jenner and Tynan in the system as well. I've been saying for three years now, that 2008 draft may come down to the best draft in the history of this franchise when we look back 15 years from now.

I don't know what you are trying to prove, but you really aren't helping your cause. True, these players aren't NHL players yet. But we've never had much hope, in the past, with these players previously drafted. Now we have players with legitimate chances of contributing at this level.

Howson and staff has done a fine job of drafting. I just don't like the NHL roster. I'm not even that upset with Howson over Filatov, even though I wanted Wilson.
