Granted it's a different era, but the reality is still the same when you're a number 1 pick, you're drafted by the worst team and things are going to take time to change. Look at the Oilers with 3 consecutive #1s and they're still awful because they have no defense or goaltending.

But I agree we haven't put the pieces around JT like those other teams did (Nolan, Sundin, Forsberg) or even more recently (Malkin, Staal, Fleury, Letang).
