From my count, this year only Ben Bishop, Reaves, Cole, and Eller will be on NHL rosters to start the season and played the majority of a season at Peoria from our 2005-present drafts.

You could argue that its the scouting staffs fault for choosing inferior players, but Peoria doesnt exactly have a sterling track record with developing players. Their on-ice performance overall has been subpar as well in recent memory.
