We need more.
1 elite player doesn't make a team. A good team that work well together can make a cup though (imho). I think we do need a better second line and we need our youth to keep developing but 1 top 3 overall pick will not help us. It's a pot luck shot that you'll get a stud, media attention and maybe a leader in the future. Our last draft worked wonders for us but I'll always say a good, deep draft with multiple NHL level players who can help and several levels beats 1 eilte player from a crap overall draft.

Remember Miller was a 5th rounder who led the USA to a silver medal and got MVP honors.
