Ouch that hurts, let’s see who we’ve drafted since then and where they were drafted.
Poile has said that you really need 3 players from each draft to make it. I’ll list each first rounder, then any other pick that made the NHL

2004 – 1st Radulov, Rinne
2005 –1st Parent(bust), Franson, Hornqvist
2006 – 1st traded no current NHL players our worst draft ever, you can’t have many years like this and survive, truly awful drafting.
2007 – 1st Jon Blum, Nick Spaling not too much better
2008 – 1st Colin Wilson 1st Chet Pickard, Roman Josi, Anders Lindback

So yeah, in those 5 draft years we have Jon Blum and Colin Wilson to show for our 5 1st round picks, that is truly horribad. 2006 and 2007 are inexcuseable.
