The second in the Carcillo deal, definitely wasted. And I like Carcillo.
The second in the Gauthier deal, I guess it is wasted, but I understand what is going on there. Gauthier is Clarke's mistake, anyway.
Most of the picks haven't been wasted, but moved for significant assets. Assets such as Hartnell, Timonen, Pronger, Carle, Meszaros, and Versteeg.
We lost an extra 1st for Pronger because of the absolutely ludicrous Lupul contract.
The 3rd for Modry was terrible.
4th for Andrew Alberts -- only reason we had to cut a deal was because Holmgren *ed up that summer so badly.
There are more than just those you can find.
