Kukla's Korner Hockey

Throughout the history of the NHL, it has been proven that every dynasty and dominant team has had assets from its farm system to draw from. You can look at the Canadiens in the 1970s, the Islanders and Oilers in the '80s and the Red Wings and Devils in the '90s for proof. For Atlanta Thrashers general manager Don Waddell, it made perfect sense to follow a similar blueprint. After seven years at the draft table, the Thrashers are beginning to see their draft efforts pay dividends. The main reason that the Thrashers are headed in the right direction is that they have not squandered any of their first-round picks. At this point all of them have panned out so far and they have some depth from the later rounds, as well.
