I attribute first round flops to more than just one man, but to the entire management team for not doing their homework.
This isn't a bash Timmins thread, since I'm talking about 30 years of drafting and his picks are still more of an unknown since only one is anywhere close to hitting his prime. The reason I put this thread was more for the long haul, why is it over 23 years before Timmins that we have almost nothing to show for our 1st round draft picks. It's not just bad, it's downright brutal. When the only thing you really have to show from 23 years of 1st round picks is Koivu, Svoboda and Corson no wonder the Habs have been so bad since they greatness of the '70's.
