That's the feeling that I have been having as well. I remember in the 90s when the Debbies would draft someone, his stock would immediately rise in my either just because I thought the Debs knew what they were doing, and usually that was accurate.
It seems like the Rangers are becoming something like that as well. From 2004 to 2009, we drafted one guy in the top-10, so we aren't talking about us having a bunch of top-5 picks.
The result? We drafted 14 NHLers, plus guys like Grachev, Werek, Bourque, who still have hope, as well as Cherry who died. Of these players, there were 10 guys who are average or better NHLers (Callahan, Dubinsky, Korps, Kreider, Anisimov, Hagelin, Stepan, Del Zotto, Staal, Sauer.)
If we could do half as well from 2010 to 2015 (meaning we draft 5 average or better NHLers plus 2-3 more low-end ones), I will be very happy.
To be able to average 2-3 NHLers per draft is unreal.
