On the whole, the draft has not been a kind beast to the Senators this decade. While they have had a measure of success in unearthing potential gems in the later rounds, a number of their first round picks have not panned out as hoped. This tweet was included in last month’s article but it bears repeating

Of the 28 picks made between 2010 and 2013, four have become NHL regulars; Mark Stone, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Curtis Lazar and Codi Ceci. With the exception of Stone, none of them have what you would consider game-breaking potential. But with strong recent drafts things look to be on the upswing
