Hey, guys, thanks for putting up with me today. I've been in a really, really foul mood today and this same old crap about drafting and Poile's ineffectiveness just hit a nerve. sorry.
I went back and re-read my first post, and I can see where I came across as saying DEt was lucky with their picks, but I meant that as that was something that people have said to me. Sorry for the confusion. I don't think it's really fair to call the lucky for drafting an off the radar guy with talent, and then turning him into a top tier player, I honestly think it's a situation of being able to provide the exact perfect method of development for that particular player. I imagine that if you switch the drafts of Erat and Datsyuk, they would almost be the exact same player the other is right now. I think each is a product of the environment in which they evolved as players.
You know, all this would fee a lot less important if they could just go out and wax Detroit's ass tomorrow.
