So on the face of it, that we still have 4/9 (44.4%) of our first rounders does show less yield over the last 11 drafts, but given the size of some of these samples, I suspect the situation isn't quite as dire as some would imagine. Interesting, though, that the only members of the class of 2002 still with their original teams are Slater and Ward. I'd have to spend more time doing numbers throughout the whole League sometime for funsies.
The other thing to consider with regards to some of this is timing. Every other team had a 2012 pick so that's a strike against the Hurricanes immediately which doesn't help matters at all. The Flyers and Bruins were two teams I glanced at who haven't had a ton of 1st round success still in the system. The Bruins have done all their damage in the 2nd round (Bergeron, Marchand,Lucic, and I think Krecji)
