I give Tallon 90% of the credit for building the 2010 team and about 50% of the credit for the players that remain on the roster today. He re-introduced a culture of winning and made it a team guys wanted to play for.
Kane was the consensus number 1 pick in the draft that year and I don't remember Staal really ever being ahead of Toews in their draft year. Also players like Kane never went undrafted.
