The thing I try to say to people is to relax, development is not always a straight line and for some there will be ups and downs, you have to work through them and while it's true that some will end up busting, give it time to see how they do. I know that's asking a lot for a rabid fan base that is in win now mode but I trust that Timmins/Gainey and the staff know what they are doing and are building not only for now but for the future.

Either way you can't blame Timmins for that! Wasen't Andrei supposed to be drafter 1st that year if it hadn't been for hie epilepsy?
