Tanking does not ensure you get a future great. Marleau is far and away the best player on that list. As good as Marleau is, he never was, and never will be that top player to build around for a successful team. Scouting is better these days, but it's still far from a sure thing.
Drafting has improved a LOT since those days. Besides, we should have had Lindros and Lecavalier too, ****ing league, ****ing org.

Reminds me, add Richards/Lecavalier/St. Louis to my list of home-grown scoring leaders.

And also, the more we kid about the safe two-way center from the 67's with skating issues, the more I laugh because Sean Monahan is that player to a T.
