As another fan pointed out to me a few years ago and that's that Bulls aren't notorious for good development and getting lots of guys off to the next level.
I don't think that's true. Off the 2008 team alone you've got Belesky, Tangradi, Matthias, and Subban all playing in the NHL. Nick Palmieri has played a number of NHL games and Shawn Lalonde is in the Chicago system. Mike Murphy (arguably the best OHL goaltender in history) was in the Canes system before moving to the KHL (he's since been released).
This past year you had Gaunce and Subban go in the first round and Zharkov go in the 3rd round. Jordan Subban is the 17th ranked skater in the OHL for this year's draft. Seems like pretty good development to me.
