And Josefson looked like a pretty good player until he got hurt and also got put in the doghouse. He'll still be an NHLer, just not an above average one. There's uncertainty with draft picks. Look at a guy like Matteau - people compared him to Tyler Biggs. Well, Biggs is a year older and currently has 8 points in the AHL - he's a bust. Meanwhile Matteau's doing just fine in the AHL, and he was no slouch in the NHL either - there's lots of work to be done there, but he's got a lot of positive attributes. You can't just say 'Lou drafted this guy so he's good/bad' - have to look at how he's developing too. There's a lot of distance between the draft and the NHL for anyone outside the top 10 picks.
To this point, the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 drafts are looking like early successes for unearthing NHL Games played. After a bad decade of drafts (in terms of NHL games played 2001, 2002 [besides CAM JAM!!], 2006, and 2007 were complete whiffs) these last drafts look like they have some consistant NHLers in them. IMO the key to staying a playoff team is consistantly finding 1 or 2 NHLers year after year more so than finding the occassional grand slam pick and the Devils seem to be getting back to a pattern of doing that.
