DW, I agree somewhat with what you're saying, but it could also be argued that last year's playoff run did more for the organization's long term health than a single late 1st rounder would, in terms of forging the team's identity, as well as building an organizational history and tradition (a winning one at that). The Wild earned some respect, which can be important down the road if and when they want to add some talent from outside the organization. The draft is one avenue to building a winning tradition, but not the only one.
