Well you're watching two guys this year, Hoglander (2nd round pick) and Rathbone (4th round pick). 

 

If you look at the statistics, it's very very unlikely that a 2nd round pick ever makes the NHL and plays any significant role.  It just don't happen often.  

 

https://guelphstorm.com/odds-not-great-for-nhl-draft-picks#:~:text=Of the 2%2C600 hundred players,12% of third rounder selections. 

 

"In order to get an accurate read of how many drafted players played at least 200 games in the NHL, a study by proicehockey.about.com looked at the drafts between 1990 and 1999. Of the 2,600 hundred players drafted just 494 or 19% played in at least 200 contests. 63% of first round picks played but less than 25% of second round picks survived and only 12% of third rounder selections. Former NHL general manager Doug MacLean said his math over the last decade showed that only 15% of second round picks ever become impact players."

lol damn then carolina's GM should be GM of the decade from 2010-2015 when they were kinda rebuilding lol.. they have 9 players with 200+ games outside of the first round lol that's almost 2 a year..
