Lets take Chicago for example they are dominating with a killer offense they must have many more top 6 forwards in the same time span,

Toews, Kane, Ruutu, and maybe Bollard and Brouwer if you really stretch the definition, thats it.

Pittsburgh - Crosby, Staal, Malkin, and Malone

The crazy thing is I went looking at teams who got top 6 forwards, and we are one of the better teams at developing forwards, especially since we didn't have number 1 picks like Chicago or Pittsburgh.
Seriously?

How many times has a Nashville Predators' had a offensive player named to the AS game that we've drafted and developed? Hartnell was not a NP when he made and has performed much better since leaving this system.
