Andre Savard botched that draft and it's the truth. We had a chance to get some big boys who crash, bang, and score but we reached on a guy who only showed glimpses and has unfortunately continued that trend.
For what it's worth, I wanted either Brown or Getzlaf.
I'm sorry if I didn't clarify that at the draft table, when IDing the BPA, they were not blessed with the ability to read the future.
Your argument was that we needed a centre, thus they erred in Kostitsyn. Clearly, with hindsight, the BPA at those various picks was someone else. Unfortunately, real life doesn't work that way and I am sure with each pick, they took who they believed was the best player available.
