Your link to the Mirtle article goes to the graph site. It's important to include Schenn under their 1st round drafting success that enabled them to acquire Richards. And somewhat less importantly Teubert enabled them to acquire Penner. Lewis was also a 1st rounder and he's a solid lower-line contributor.

IMO if your team composition is less than 50% drafted players (as it is in the Stars' case) you have structural issues with your organization. And that has undoubtedly been true here.
I just copied Mirtle's format (only current players on the team) otherwise the LA graph and Dallas graph wouldn't be comparable. If the discussion was purely about their ability to draft I do agree that is important.

You'd need the same for Dallas with Ivan Vishnevskiy and Kari Lehtonen or James Neal/Matt Niskanen and Alex Goligoski.
