The Coyotes are actually middle of the pack when it comes to drafting. I did a study a few years ago of 15 years of drafting and they were about 14th. The key seemed to be more around development.

San Jose were top. They are about the best in the league (along with Montreal, New Jersey and Colorado). LA looks like it's on way there too.

Its interesting to see more ex-draftees playing for other teams. Zeiler, Ferriero, Callahan, Porter, Kolarik, Winnik, LeNeveu etc.. guys who struggled to crack our line-up. That wasnt the case a few years ago and is an indication of improving strength in depth. Two of them played for LA and San Jose which you wouldnt have expected.
