Only 1 pick in the top 20 in 21 years? Yeah I think maybe you can say they deserve one right about now.

Top 10 Picks 1992-2012
10 - Anaheim
9 - Boston ('97)
2 - Buffalo
6 - Calgary
7 - Carolina/Hartford
7 - Chicago ('07)
4 - Colorado/Quebec
11 - Columbus ('02) ***in 12 seasons***
3 - Dallas
0 - Detroit
10 - Edmonton ('10, '11, '12)
12 - Florida ('94)
6 - Los Angeles
8 - Minnesota
5 - Montreal
6 - Nashville
2 - New Jersey
18 - NY Islanders ('00, '09)
7 - NY Rangers
9 - Ottawa ('93, '95, '96)
4 - Philadelphia
6 - Phoenix/Winnipeg
6 - Pittsburgh ('03, '05)
9 - San Jose
2 - St. Louis ('06)
12 - Tampa Bay ('92, '98, '08)
5 - Toronto
6 - Vancouver
7 - Washington ('04)
11 - Winnipeg/Atlanta ('99, '01)
The Islanders with 18 top 10 picks in the last 21 drafts ...I don't know if I should laugh or feel sorry for them
