And that's just off memory, there's probably more.

Timmins is a great scout, but you can't win a cup by just giving Timmins 7 draft picks every year and hoping for the best. The good drafting has to be complemented by good signings and good trades.
This is very true, but check those teams and their drafts...everyone knows you build through the draft, and compliment with trades/ufa's...Habs fans are having a tough time being patient...I know I am also...
