[QUOTE=Mizral] Let me give you a few examples of some teams' top players that are now good, but in the past, when they were rebuilding:

Ottawa: Alfredsson, Yashin, Redden, Phillips, Lalime
Detroit: Fedorov, Lidstrom, Yzerman, etc..
Avalanche: Sakic, Foote, Forsberg, etc..
Vancouver: Naslund, Bertuzzi, Ohlund, Jovanovski

What would you say the Oilers have? Hemsky, Smyth, Brewer, and probobly York would be the top players, but how many of 'em compare to the names above?

yabut Didn't Ottawa have the top picks 5 years in a row i.e Berard
as well.?
