We're probably 2/4 when it comes to the 2010 draft. It's on you to pick a lot, and we did in other drafts, where we shot for high percentages as well.

In general, you know your team is drafting well when your finding players and real legitimate prospects in all rounds. From top to bottom. Zack Smith was an NHLer within 2-3 seasons of being drafted (doesn't matter that he was older, he was available to everyone). Mark Stone may be an NHLer by the time he's 21 as a 6th rounder. Erik Karlsson was a Norris trophy winner by 21, taken outside the top 10. We made a move in 2010 that turned Rundblad into Turris, who is our 2nd line center. The team we traded with took a Russian (we wouldn't have), but for fun, he hasn't provided St Louis with anything yet, which means something, although he may turn out outstanding. The guy we would have picked, probably Bennett, is an AHLer, and may end up decent. Borowiecki may be an NHLer by 23, as a 6th rounder.

Pretty outstanding so far.
