You may be right that disco hasn't had anyone to develop, but I think your wrong about the second part and if you need proof just ask the Chicago Blackhawks. They've won two cups and made big trades immediately following those wins. They can do that because, they know how to draft and develop their own players, RS could learn something from them.
but chicago also had the core of Toews, Kane, and Sharp... young superstars who jumped straight to the NHL without needing seasoning in the minors
That's the point, they had guys come straight to the Nhl, but they also drafted and developed Shaw, krueger, bolland, bickell, saad, hjalmarsson,keith,seabrook, crawford along with trades they made with other guys they drafted. That's the difference between chicago and the pens, chicago developed the supporting cast, the pens haven't.
