A wasted asset is a wasted asset. That Makes 3 1st rounders(montoya, Jessiman, Korpikoski) with absolutely NOTHING to show for it. I can't think of any recent teams that have ZERO assets after giving up 3 1st rounders in trades.

Absolutely dreadful management you'd expect from a novice GM.
To be fair, how many teams can say that in the past decade, they've had 3 or less first rounders turn into nothing? The draft is kind of a crap chute, especially outside of the top 5.

What was he really going to turn Korpikoski into? Lisin was the best value you could've asked for, it was a project player that showed some promise with 13 goals in 47 games. If he would've panned out, that's a top 6 player coming from a 4th line player being dealt.

And he did turn Montoya and Hossa into Sjostrom, who was pretty solid for us.
