Well, we keep mentioning on this board that it's not because we would have drafted Getzlaf or any other guys that succeeded elsewhere that he would have develop the way we wanted.....so...how about the fact that who knows how Brule would have developed if he would have been picked by us? Is it too far fetched to think that Hitchcock kills a whole lot of youngsters potential unless you are an exceptional la Rick Nash?

Anyway, it makes no sense going back to the 2005 draft now. It's irrelevant anyway, if we would have developed him better, we wouldn't care about that anyway. I didn't agree at all with the pick at the time, I wanted Brule, but clearly Timmins made a fine pick 'cause drafting him wasn't the problem. Developing him.....that's another story.
