BFC, like I've said to Dulz and anyone else around here, look at the 5 picks after Poile picked and tell me who he was supposed to pick? I think that is the biggest thing getting lost in translation. Did anyone ever think that there might not have been the talent available at the pick we had? The 2003 draft withstanding since basically every team scored, where did Poile mess up in the first round with his selections? I say 5 picks after as an example of what the next 5 teams selected and was probably within what Poile should've been picking from since he's conservative. Other than Hemsky in place of Hamhuis and maybe Zajac instead of Radulov, he picked the best player available for our team at the time. Some like Parent were busts because of injuries but the 5 guys selected after Parent faired no better or were borderline players.
