Development is more important than drafting.
Except with all world players like Crosby, Ovy, etc.
That is it. The problem is when teams get so empty of talent there is nothing trying to replace nothing. When you have a good team you only need to replace players as needed. Ie new Sedins every 10-15 years. We've got another 4 years or so find those replacements. Detroit just kept rolling along by finding one or two good players.
