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.
Watch in two years Lee Farlardeau will look like Joel Otto centering our checking line. This is the exact intent of drafting this player.
