I don't necessarily agree with all of his arguments, but I would say that I personally believe that GMGM deserves little of the respect he gets for his generally excellent drafting since 2003.

In my mind, the expansion of the scouting and Ross Mahoney deserve most of the credit. In fact, I recall reading somewhere (Though, I will admit I cannot find the source material again) that McPhee basically admitted that he drafted who the scouts advised him to. However, I will admit that it is difficult to find teams that have drafted better then the Capitals in recent years.
