David Legwand
Denis Arkhipov
Geoff Koch
Kent Sauer
Martin Beauchesne
Craig Brunel
Martin Bartek
Karlis Skrastins

Now come up with the top forwards based on what they've done in the NHL, whether it's for us or another team:

Hartnell
Legwand
Erat
Hornquist
Upshall
Radulov
Arkhipov
Smith
Wilson

Now stop and look at that list. It's mind-blowing we've been drafting since 1998 and haven't produced one all star forward with maybe the exception of Hartnell, and he's borderline. An entire generation of forwards have come into the league since 1998 and this is our top list.

This organization can not draft and develop forwards. Period.
