we don't have any high picks, that's the problem. Of the few high picks we have made over the last 5 years, all of them (not Laughton) are playing in the league. That is better than some can say.
I can't fault homer for what happened before he was GM.
I think he will draft whoever he thinks is best, which is a philosophy I agree with.
A poster named appleyard did some analysis showing that like 5% of 3rd round picks play more than 200 games in the NHL. Not good to build your farm around 3rd rounders and below.
