That means nothing. The Red Wings are notoriously slow in their development. They don't rush players. On that list I see players like Brendan Smith, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, Calle Jarnkrok, Petr Mrazek... Just because these guys weren't placed in the NHL at 20 doesn't mean they don't have high-end potential and should make up a group of solid NHL players.

The Wings have made the playoffs 20 straight years with almost entirely teams made up of their draft picks. Their prospect pool is top notch despite this. Give credit to your opponent when it's due.
