But where do you want them to find these mythical players? If you aren't tanking, it's going to be extremely hard to find them. Hence why having Kreider play as a 1st liner would be huge for us since he was a late 1st round pick. You don't find guys like that very often that late in the draft.

Modern scouting has gotten to the point where these guys that are the top liners don't normally drop far anymore.
