Well, when you look at the draft classes we've had recently, I am not that disappointed and negative about the future. If we have 1 player each year who make the team and are solid, that's enough.

2007 we had Hagelin and Cherepanov. Bad luck there
2008 we had Del Zotto, Stepan, Gravchev and Weise who all played for us. The first two are important players now
2009 we had Kreider who is close
2010 we had McIlrath who is close to being called up
2011 we had Miller

Anything of last years draft is not really fair to judge at this point already.

To top that off, our team is relatively young. We are not a team like Calgary, San Jose or Detroit who rely on 30-year olds in every line.
