however you don't need to finish in last and win the lottery to get great prospects.

alot of great prospects get picked just outside of 1st overall like Rielly, Galchenyuk, Murray, Schiefele, Strome, Huberdeau, Landeskog, Larsson, Couturier, Seguin, Johansson, Skinner, Duchene, Kane, OEL.

some of those will bust no doubt as there's no gaurentee like alot of people like to point out but alot of those probably will be qualty NHL players.
All true. So perhaps it makes sense to be patient and allow Burke's picks and young players the same time to develop that it takes everyone else's prospects? Rather than focusing on being in the lottery, let's focus on making every pick count no matter where it is and let's give them ample time to develop.
