Not bad for a team picking in the late 20s every year

Josefson, Gelinas, Cormier and Palmieri are all bad. None of them will ever be a good NHL player. The fact you listed them proves my point. Boucher has to make the NHL. Fayne and Severson are not highly rated prospects. Henrique is a good NHL player. Larsson should be. That's a very poor amount of players the past 8 years. Essentially you have 2 or 3 players over the last 5 to 8 years that are good NHL players. That is poor drafting. Matteau hasn't done anything. He played in the NHL, he was rushed, he stunk. Now he is back in juniors. Of that group Merrill is the most talented not counting Henrique and Larsson. Anybody who knows about Merrill knows he is not coachable and has a severe attitude problem.
