Secondly, outside of rare cases such as 2003 and 1979, or weak cases like 1996, all drafts tradiaationally pan out to be average. Every second year the draft class is supposed to be either great or weak, deep or shallow. But most pan out to to be the same. Even those which are deep, that depth doesn't extend into the mid-2nd round very often. In most drafts, the success rate of a 2nd round pick is about 20-30 per cent (that the player will play the equivalent of two full NHL seasons).
You can't say that Loktionov doesn'thave what it takes to pplay top 6 just because he didn't play on our top 2 cause we had no room. I'd still wouldn't give up Toffoli and a second. Stoll and Toffoli is more fair.
