I'm not so big on the Timmins bashing, but there is some merit to the criticism of our lack of production in the 1st round AND our lack of solid top 6 players coming from our system in his stay (then again, we dealt 2 top 6 guys from Belarus for what amounts to Greg Pateryn at this point).
I agree we are not very good at drafting forwards that could end up in our top 6. However Pacioretty could be on his way there on day. Timmins makes up for it by drafting NHL caliber defenceman and superstar goalies.
