Not by keeping out prospects who are ready, just for ***** and giggles.

Any team, business and person that is very successful does have some sort of luck involved. But to keep it going for two decades also requires a great deal of skill and understanding. I won't pretend that Lidstrom, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Konstantinov, and Holmstrom along with a lot of other late picks didn't require some luck. However, the track record suggests they are really helping make their luck with good player selection and an environment and team philosophies that have helped really maximize the returns.
