Yeah..... Where is everyone?
you need to look closer how things are worded. The guy made a point to say they haven't had someone break through lately.

Helm was drafted 7 years ago with a career high of 32 points. That is not exactly lately.

I am guessing 'Abby' is Abdelkader, who was also drafted 7 years ago with a career high of 22 points. Again not exactly lately.
  • Smith looks like an excellent prospect, but with 14 games he has not 'broken through'.
  • Nyquist looks like a good prospect, but 18 games he has not 'broken through'.
  • Filppula was drafted 10 years ago, definitely not a recent break through player.
  • Kronwall was drafted 12 years ago, also not a recent break through.
  • Franzen was drafted 8 years ago as a 25 year old. Not a recent break through.
  • Howard was drafted 9 years ago, again not a recent break through.

The fact you can't list a player drafted less than 7 years ago that actually has an NHL season under their belt does nothing but prove his point.
