It's a feel-good article but I don't get my hopes up yet for this team. Two years of the Jets drafting and developing doesn't replace the inconsistency of the old Thrashers.

Can't wait for the 2013 draft, assuming the lockout is done by then. For all the analysis in preceding posts about how many NHLers you get out of each round one must remember that the actual realized number is highly variable year-to-year, round-to-round and team-to-team. Thus, it's all the more crucial for the teams future for their scouting staff to have a good year (and a lot of luck). Those 6 picks in the top 90 could be 6 future core players that take us to the cup and they could just as easily be 6 busts that mark 2013 as a shameful year remembered by Jets fans.
