I found this link through the Devils forum on HF Boards. It ties in nicely with what I put up over the weekend, that the Devils are the second best team overall in the NHL in the last 15 years. After all, you need to draft plenty of talented players to remain a consistent contender in the NHL. Tom Awad uses a metric called GVT to determine who has been the most successful at drafting in the last 15 years. Awad expected the Devils in first, but I think those "lean" years from 1999 through 2002 hold the Devils back. I think you'll be surprised who he found was first!
