There were lots of high picks spent on d-men, and those guys all turned out to be middling NHLers, which is a shame. Bad drafting leads to thin rosters.
Is it the actual bad drafting, or poor player development? You can pick the right player(s), but if you don't develop them properly it can be just as bad as drafting a complete bust.
