He even grabbed Vitale late in the '05 draft.

Moral of the story is, be patient and let Shero do his thing. We are already starting to see some of his guys make an impact and there should be a steady stream of his guys helping this team over the coming years.
One other thing people need to keep in mind: sometimes drafts are just bad. There's no guarantee that there will be good players in a draft. It happens.
