Is he a horrible dman? No. But is that the result you want your pro scouts to deliver when the team is moving a first rounder (regardless of where it is)?
But that's what I mean when I say too many variables can come into play...it's not like the pro scouts get free pickings from around the league, we can't trade for players that are unavailable unless maybe we have something better than a late 1st expendable to get that better player....that is less available.

I don't think it was a failing at all...it just wasn't a big win...the Campoli trade was a "meh" deal too me...no win/no loss.
