That team is certainly the exception rather than the rule.

Gomez turned into a first line center for some time.
Madden was one of the games elite third line pivots for a number of years.
Rafalski was a top pairing guy.
White was a solid stay at home #4 guy.

Not saying we can't win with a bunch of question marks in depth roles, but that list is filled with guys who had long lasting NHL careers that came from the organization that only Detroit can rival in drafting success.
