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.
It was really the 2004-2007 drafts that were the problem for Atlanta. They had decent years both before and after that.

The 4 drafts from 2004-07 netted Little, Pavelec and Machacek. That's it. That sucks!!

EDIT

Forgot Postma. Still sucks.
