They were prob instructed to build a foundation, a youth movement rather than a superstar search(it's not easy to find one). Internal competition for jobs, young players on the roster and so on are keys to building success under the salary cap era.
Timmins has gone for home run types imo. Trunev, Kostitsyn come to mind.
