And those 5 years (4 years actually) were worth it as he's turning into one hell of a player.

The guy was supposed to go top 5 but dropped because teams were scared of him due his medical problems, as Montreal doctors were able to diagnose him and find out the medical issues would not be a problem why would they not take him? It's easy to point fingers now and say who they should have picked, but back then it was the old NHL so players like Parise were dropping due to their size and not big enough to make an impact and Getzlaf dropped because of his attitude (same thing happening to Beach this year).

Too bad we don't have some posters on here as our scouts instead of guys like Timmins and company as i'm sure you would have picked Getzlaf #10 for us instead of AK46 and also you would have probably have drafted us Datsyuk and Zetterberg in the late 90's before Detroit would've been able to.

If you are criticizing our draft picks who have actually excelled in the NHL and made an impact for us I would have liked to see you in the 90's when every year our first rounder was a bust.
