Even if you write off Glennie (which is perfectly fair ... not trying to start that debate right now), that 2009 draft is shaping up to be a hell of a haul.

Smith and Chiasson are shaping up to be realistic Top 6 options, and you've got another depth player in Vincour. 3 potential NHLers out of one draft is hard to do.
Exactly.

If you told us in 2009 our 5th round pick would be in the NHL by 2010, as a defensively sound puck-possession type player, would you say we should be getting rid of him by 2013? Vincour's development has been pretty incredible and quicker than anyone else in this organization since Benn. He might not have the hands to ever be a top 6 forward, but that's no reason to call him a failure.
