A lot of the issues are from the 09-12 drafts, 08 the didn't have a first. Three straight wasted first round picks(09-11), that is what's hurting the team the most. Which was before Nill took over.
Of Nil's picks
Some players need ice time. (Dickinson, Honka). Nichushkin's the one that has hurt the most, going back to Russia. He would've been a strong trade piece, if he didn't work out with the Stars, when you go back to Russia that destroyed his trade value. Selling low on players is a dumb move, unless they're a aging veteran.
Others need time to develop more such as Guryanov, Hintz.
