And you're right. Outside of Bob, nothing has shown so far, but I like the way it's been. Having no picks he's done a pretty good job getting talent.

The problem is that I'd rather have some picks. I still don't think it's a viable strategy for a long-term investment. It's okay for now, but anymore than this and he's pushing it. We need some top-end talent to flow into the pool.



Agreed.
Ah yes, Gustafsson. I have hopes for him as well, but nothing too great. I know nothing of the others.

Luckily the core of this team is largely young, and a lot of it will be around for close to 3 more seasons. I'm not horribly concerned about the lacking pool right now.
