But what we do with those extra prospects is a separate issue again. The tactic of trading mid-late 1st round picks for extra 2nd round picks has proved successful - we have lots of quality young players because of it.
The tactic of burying those large numbers of quality young players in the minors is proving un-successful.
If we'd kept those mid-late first rounders and not traded down, those mid-late first rounders would still be stuck in the minors.
But hey, at least its brought us a Calder Cup I guess....
