Yandle and Hanzal are both from the 2005 draft class.

Its arguable there's a visible correlation between an improvement at the draft and the performance of the Coyotes. Yandle, Hanzal and OEL form the heart of the team under Doan's leadership. But 2005 was 7 years ago, the draft is certainly not a single magic ingredient.
