Not picking on you in particular but for all those who say drafting in the top 3 or 4 isn't a lot better than 8th or wherever are just wrong.
True you can find good players throughout but as far as I can tell your odds are a heck of a lot better at the top.
I hear you.... but I'll try again, how may times have the N.J. Devils drafted #1 overall? Or the LA Kings, or the Canes, or the Bolts prior to winning their Cups.... or, or, or....

Winning in the NHL, in general, is more about the organization than the #1 draft pick... Not saying top draft picks are not important but they are not the only way to win a Stanley Cup...
