Do you ever want to see this team win a Stanley Cup? They aren't doing it with Johansen and Atkinson as the lone offensive threats, I can tell you that. This team needs talent, and a lot of it. That can be found with a top pick.
There can be crappy picks all over the draft. What this team needs is a system, culture and the people in charge to minimize the chance of failure, not a golden boy who is supposed to swoop in and save the day.

IMO, there is way too much handwringing over which pick the CBJ end up with. There is no quick fix, and we do not need another Nash type. Perhaps the development system can get to the point where the CBJ can shape the players they draft rather than expect finished products that may or may not really fit.

In the meantime, it's ok to have some fun watching the grinders have some unexpected, but hard earned success.
