The Leafs need to finish last a few years in a row and get the 1st overall pick a few times. These 5th overall just don't seem to be working out.

The oNLY way to build a Championship team is through the draft. These accelerated rebuilds do not work, you just end up with a bunch of old players like Komisarek, Connolly and so on that can't win.
Actually, it looks as though recently all of our higher draft picks have been turning out pretty well. If you count the Schenn for JVR swap as well.
