I guess that means we should hold off on the Parise praise, huh? Afterall, many people thought Dawes had a better tournament at the Juniors, but, since neither player is in the NHL yet, no need for argument. My only point was that we are seeing nice development from many of the players selected by the Renney/Maloney team. This group has had only three years in place and ARE producing results. I, for one, have faith in this group's drafting ability. It also why I have no problem with the selection of Jessiman last year. This is NOT Smith's draft team, nor is it Sather's draft team from the Oiler debacle of the '90's. I like what I've seen so far (aside from the confusing Falardeau pick.) BTW, since Tyutin, Blackburn, Murray, Lampman, Zdlicky and Ortmeyer have played "AN NHL GAME", I can "brag" about that.
