I said it already but I think Timmins is excellent (probably the best in the NHL) to identify the qualities that can make a prospect an NHL player (size, speed, grit, defensive awareness, etc.). But I also think he is awful when it's time to identify what makes a player a high end talent who can produce offensively on a regular basis (quality of shot, hockey sense, lateral vision, quality of passes, pure skills, etc.)

I think this is why he's so bad in the 1st round, but so good in the following ones. It seems like he's picking players based on the same criterias in every round. But in the 1st round, you have to be able to identify "pure skills". "Size + speed" alone don't make a player an all-star.
