Adding one prospect to your NHL roster per season would probably be considered a pretty good clip considering many NHL players have long careers spanning 10+ seasons. Add to that the UFAs that are usually added to each team's roster each off season and there aren't that many spots available for rookies on many teams.
Depending on your definition of star player, I would argue that teams add a star player once every 5-10 years. The last star player the Canucks developed was Kesler, IMO. Maybe we'll be able to add Schneider to that list in one or two years.
