Just the way it works. It's definitely not a bad thing though as it keeps fans of other teams wondering how we keep on getting all of these steals.

On that note as much flak as our FO gets for not making trades/big signings they have done a great job of stock piling picks/great prospects over the past 2 or 3 years & it really shows. I think we have a top 10 pool with some high end potential guys, and if only 1/4 of our guys even make the NHL we should still have a pretty good lineup. I mean picking up guys like Jurco, Oullet, Sproul, Tvrdon, Backman & Marchenko in 11, then in 2010 we get Sheahan, Jarnkrok, Pulkinnen & Mrazek. It really goes to show how important draft picks really are in the new NHL.
