If there's one lesson recent Stanley Cup winners have taught the teams trying to dethrone them, it's the value of building from within.

The core of championship teams continues to be players who are drafted and developed by that franchise.

But finding the right talent isn't easy. Every team has had its ups and downs since the draft began in 1963. Here's a look at the hits (and some of the misses) for the eight teams in the Atlantic Division on draft day:

Texas Stars win first Calder Cup with OT victory

The Texas Stars won the Calder Cup for the first time in their five-year history when Patrik Nemeth scored 14:30 into overtime for a 4-3 victory against the St. John's IceCaps on Tuesday in Game 5 of the American Hockey League's championship series.

Nemeth, a second-round pick (No. 41) by the parent Dallas Stars in the 2010 NHL Draft, deked his way into the slot before firing a high wrist shot past IceCaps goaltender Michael Hutchinson for his first goal of the Calder Cup Playoffs.

The Stars, the AHL's top team during the regular season, won the final three games of the series on the road in overtime. Regular-season MVP and scoring champion Travis Morin captured the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the playoffs after finishing with a league-best 22 points in 21 playoff games. Morin led all scorers with seven points in the Calder Cup Finals, including three game-winning goals.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
