That's because they've had what, four first round picks in the past 10 years? And even those are quite low. Yet their prospect pool is among the best in the league.
Even without their 1st round picks, they usually get 2-3 NHLers per draft. That's unbelievably good. They seem to do very well trading these players for pieces they need.
Scouting is also so much better compared to when Datsyuk and Holmstrom were drafted. It's incredibly rare for a superstar to go past the 2nd round.
