Its the same story every year the closer we get to draft day the more shallow it is. This is a deep year for high ceiling players, now that may not translate into finding superstars in the sixth round but the first round has a deep top 15-20.
You can find first line players throughout the early rounds in most drafts. But some of it is scouting and some of it is dumb luck.

If we're going to miss the playoffs, I hope the Kings and Rangers join us. The chance to do something special like the Canucks did in drafting the Sedins or the Ducks did with Perry and Getzlaf is something this franchise could use in a big way.

Of course, I'm hoping Scott Howson is nowhere near our drafting decisions. Let JD and Patrick control our drafting. This opportunity is too important to make another blunder.
