Chiarelli put together the team that won the Cup. I will be forever grateful for that.
His drafting is a joke.
Hamill, Colbourne and Caron. El Busto, El Busto and looking like El Busto. His first round winners are Seguin (bushmen in the Sarengeti could have made that pick) and Hamilton (logical choice). Don't bother telling me Subban was a winning draft pick as he's never played a pro game.
Taking Seguin and Hamilton out of the story, since 2007, Chiarelli draft picks have 33 points. Taking Caron out of that, they have EIGHT.
In 2007, the Habs selected Subban and Pacioretty. 256 combined points.
In 2008, the Rangers took Stepan and Del Zotto. 235 points.
There are always examples of people doing better or worse. (I find draft history very interesting, as you may know.) These were the first ones on Google, so I used them.
Once again, before you click that "reply" button and attempt to blow me up: I'm happy the Bruins won the Cup. Chiarelli made a few very important moves to get the team there. Without those moves, it is very unlikely we could have had a parade in 2011. This is the present. As we watch slug after slug get called up from Providence and fail, a review is in order. Outside of two gimmes, no Chiarelli draft pick is an NHL player. (NHL player = NHL playing time while never getting scratched for Pandopho.) And that's poor.
