I think he's been very instrumental in the Rangers' approach to the last 2 drafts & scouting in general. I know Gordie Clark gets much-deserved credit but so should this guy.
Bruins' fans will have you believe that Chiarelli was doing everything, even though he wasn't legally allowed to, and maybe there's some truth to that.
But in the few months that Gorton was the Bruins' GM, he got them Zdeno Chara, Marc Savard, Tuukka Rask, Phil Kessel, Milan Lucic & Brad Marchand (and Paul Mara & Petr Tenkrat).
Maybe Chia was pulling the strings, but I know he wasn't at the draft table and the 2006 draft produced the Bruins' 2 1st line wingers and one of their best forward prospects.
