Obviously due to the way the draft is regulated in the NHL (rewarded for losing) we should have a ton of elite talent all making significant contributions to the big club. We still don't.

Its like saying that Tambellini is the best GM ever because of his draft record
Two problems:

1) Burke wasn't here for 8 years
2) This "elite talent" you speak of comes from the top 1 to 3 picks. We've had one of those and in our case it ended up being the 6th overall scorer in the league.
