In response to kelvana33's comment:
Made some really nice trades, but I'd have to see more out of the drafting to call him the best G.M in the league. I know it scouts play a big role in it, and they have a lesser roll in trades as well, but it ultimately falls on him. I'd say his drafting is sub par up to this point.
Sub par ?
I'm waiting to see how some of the latest picks turn out before considering giving him a below average grade.
I hear what your saying Chowda, but what about these picks?
2007:Hamill, Cross, Reul, Goulet, Ostrcil, Knackstedt
2008: Colborne,Sauve, Hutchinson, Arniel,Tremblay,Goggin
2009: Caron,Button,MacDermid, Randall,Sexton..
Thats his draft picks from over 5 years ago. How many of those are you confident will be ready to contribute at the NHL level soon? I'm not judging him from 2010 on, but thats 17 picks from 3 consecutive drafts., I think there should have been some return by now. You?
