Kane and Toews were gimme picks,,,

And outside of Hjalmarsson and Toews his 1st 2 drafts were awful. Add in his ? 2007 draft after Kane (Aliu has potential though)

And I see you didn't include his free agent history nor his resigning history

Tallon inherited the foundation of a strong team. Add the give me picks and you have a great up and coming team.

And I will praise his trading ,,,, He was pretty darn good at that outside of the Babchuk/Richmond and Wiz for Pahlsson deals.
