I didn't forget any of them. Not knocking the later picks which are as good as any team has made from rounds 2-7 over the past 5 years (although they've also had some bizarro throwaway picks in those rounds during the same period).
That said, my original comment was trying to make the point that with Wang in charge I believe the Isles are going nowhere no matter how well they draft. They have a great prospect pool...Wonderful. I'm interested in winning the Stanley Cup, and I don't believe that Wang has the brain to hire the right people and make the moves necessary to develop those prospects into players that will lead to Stanley Cups (and I'm taking into account the move to Barclays Center).
