The jury is out. Hartikainen is a great pick, guys like Klefbom and Marincin have promise, but we haven't been able to find many role players all that well.

The development of Lander, Pitlick, Paajarvi, etc will be key if one can be a 3rd liner at the next level.

I think the fact we found a gem in Eberle in the last 1/3 of the first round has clouded some judgement as to how good our scouts actually are. That being said, is it better to find 3rd liners half the time or a stud like Eberle every 10 years?
