You have to trade to fill needs. Or sign UFAs to fill needs. Waiting on a draft pick to develop to fill a need takes time. And during that time of wait, other needs tend to develop.

The Kings would not have won the Cup last year without the trades they made.
I agree you need trades along with drafting, but Edmonton's lack of success has everything to do with not having strong vets surrounding your young players.
