Indeed. Even more so evident when you take a look at the

As of roughly five years later, it's a squad that has managed to bag a grand total of one NHL games played (Helenius made it between the posts with Tampa). Seven players drafted, one first rounder (again, Helenius). The rest, fourth round or lower.
Out of this year's projected team, I count six guys I already know WILL make an appearance in the NHL, and roughly another six who have very high prospects to do so. Eight drafted players already, three first rounders (plus one early second), and at least four more slated to go next year, three of them projected first rounders.
So yeah. The way we've come... yes indeed.
