The chances of one team getting consecutive 1st overall picks is actually pretty difficult to do if you think about it. I think the Oilers were very fortunate to be able to get 3 #1's in a row. And its even harder now with the lottery odds changing. Throw in the fact we lucked out with Eberle at #22 and J.Schultz signing as a UFA, our rebuild went almost perfectly the last 3-4 years in terms of adding young elite talent.
