I dont expect superstars in the second round but they should have some better forwards than they do.
Coyle for one is looking like a good pick, though it is early to tell. Hertl looks to be pretty similar. Either way with our limited knowledge they seem like good picks.
I only consider the last 5 years to be relevant, and even then as long as they show improvement over that time it is a good sign. I'd love to see someone put together a list of teams icing players picked below the 2nd round or not at all, I would be the Sharks are pretty high on that list. Right now we are icing:
that is 8 players out of 23 that are 'home grown' AND picked beyond the 2nd round. To me that says the Sharks are pretty good at finding talent where others have failed.
Also, of our top prospects:
are all 2nd round or undrafted players. There are quite a few more. Plus you could include Nieto in this general discussion as well. Not NHl ready of course but looks like a solid 2nd round pick so far.
