Chicago did it by focusing on the draft. They've drafted 37 times since the 2009 draft, including 13 picks in the first two rounds.

By comparison, the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team that was in REBUILD mode, drafted 29 times in that same span, with only 8 picks in the first two rounds. That's 1 pick more than what we would have drafted by default (4 X 7) and the equivalent number of picks in the first two rounds we would have drafted by default (4 X 2).
