That's what I pay attention to when I consider the quality of a draft year for a team. Doesn't really excite me a whole lot. I know Edmonton is struggling. Zharkov is known to be inconsistent at putting it all together... but yeah nothing to write home about.
It's not just Hopkins that made the the draft 2 drafts ago, it's the progress of all of the other players. Being able to see that 3-4 of those players are going to be in the NHL on day. That's quality. Or the draft 3 years ago where we traded Hall. Knowing that pretty much every one of those players will eventually play in the NHL one day. That's when I know a draft that'll have a huge impact on your team.
