i disagree. a team need not suck to get good. the devils have been at the top of their game for many years. didnt need a tank job to remain there either.

top 20 picks (actually earned*) are rare for them. being consistently powerful got them to the SCF last season while on the way paving a road over division rivals. but of course you already know about that, right.

4th larsson '11 (thank maclean for that one)*
20th josefson '09*
20th zajac '04*
17th parise '03 (moved up from 30th to 22nd then trade to 17th)
10th lance ward '96 (what a brutal draft year all around the league)*
17th sykora '95*

the model of tanking to win is a myth to me, it can be done without it.....although pens somehow pulled it off...... oilers will prove it doesnt work next.....unless they move some forwards for Dmen to succeed
