If the stats were compared on 'hits' in the draft in the last 20 years I am sure the Flyers and Detroit would both be among the best in the NHL...
I believe that we are better % wise in the first two rounds, them with later round picks.
However, much of their success came through them being one of the only teams who had expansive european scouting in the 90's.
Since 2000 they have drafted what, one all star calibre player, (Jimmy Howard)
and 12 players with 200 games played, and 26 who made the NHL.
We have drafted, what, 5 all stars? (Williams, Sharp, Richards, Carter, Giroux) and 14 players with 200 games played, and 38 who made the NHL.
I would rather have our scouting network and draft picks than theirs these days.
