Especially when many of the players taken after guys like Strome, Nino and even Reinhart are already playing in the NHL

Why doesn't the good draft of 2008 count? Snow drafted Hammer, Martin and Ullström in that draft. He also drafted two regular NHLers 2009, Cizikas and JT. Maybe more to come in Lee, CdH and Nilsson. It seems like you don't know that our prospect pool is very deep and talented. Read about our prospects. It will be more NHLers soon - when they're ready. No need to rush them like Bailey.

2010 Snow drafted Niño, Nelson and Kabanov.
2011 he drafted Strome, Mayfield, Sundström, Kichton, Pedan, Russo, Persson and Theoret. That draft is almost perfect. All of those players can be "regular NHLers" in the near future.

There is three players drafted after Reinhart who are playing in the NHL right now. Grigorenko, Laughton and Matteau. I guess that you blame Snow for not drafting Stefan Matteau instead of Reinhart?

206 players was drafted after Strome. Only 9 has played in the NHL. Most of those players like Rakell, Bärtschi and Zibanejad hasn't played more than 10 games. Only two of the players who got drafted after Strome has played more than 10 games in the NHL. #8 Couturier and #139 Shaw. Do you blame Snow for drafting Strome instead of Andrew Shaw? I don't.
