Fleury 1st overall
Whitney 5th overall

They had a top 5 pick from 02-05. I'll gladly take 2-3 years of rebuilding to become the leagues best team with the 2 best forwards in the league over finishing 9th or 10th 3 years in a row

Every cup winning team in recent history has had a player lead them who was a recent top 5 draft pick. I'll take missing the playoffs badly and getting a Malkin type over missing the playoffs barely and get 4 Drew Stafford type players in a row.
