Wonder how many are still around now.
I've been wondering that myself.
Kelley is of course still at the helm, but the 2011 and 2012 drafts both look pretty good so far; better than some previous drafts looked even this early at only six months out. Only time will tell if those turn into anything at the NHL level, but they're certainly good signs. I'll be really curious if the 2013 draft goes off just as well.
I'm thinking out loud more than I'm suggesting anything, but I'm starting to wonder if the scouting department went through some changes after 2010.
