This team has much bigger problems than a player drafted in the late 1st who is more likely than not to never play an NHL game.
Shea Weber - 49th overall
Claude Giroux - 22nd overall
MSL - undrafted
Duncan Keith - 54th overall
Jamie Benn - 129th overall
Zach Parise - 17th overall
James Neal - 33rd overall
Joe Pavelski - 205th overall
Tuuka Rask- 21st overall
Cory Perry - 28th overall
Ryan Getzlaf- 17th overall

Point being is that you can draft quality players outside of the top ten. But, when you trade away all of your opportunities to draft those players, well, you end up being the NYR.
