Although Wilson took 4 years to get with the program.

This team all about D and we only depelop D and DF.

Outside of Hartnell and Erat I can't recall anyone else that we develop to a true top liner.

This can't be overlooked. That is a huge problem.
You are misrepresenting history. We have only had a few players who we drafted who you could reasonably expect to develop into "top" forwards. That would be Legwand, hartnell,upshall,radulov,and wilson. Those have turned out pretty well. I'm sorry you can't blame our system for shishkanov and ppivko from becoming staRs
