The worst part about Homer taking over as GM -- aside from his atrocious cap management, of course -- is the fact that our scouting department has experienced a noticeable plunge in quality. It's odd, because we had some really good drafts when he was Director of Player Personnel/Assistant GM (I guess he just isn't as intricately involved in scouting anymore because of all the other duties required of a GM). Our last three drafts, since Homer became GM, haven't really been that impressive. I mean, which of the players that he has drafted, aside from JVR, at the moment actually look like they might have a real shot at being significant contributors in the NHL? Maroon? What's the deal with Ericsson? I'm still smarting over the Garrett Klotz selection in the third round of 2007. I'd love to know exactly what was going on in Homer's brain when he made that pick (it should tell you something that Klotz wasn't even entertaining the thought of being selected when he got the call).
