Both great choices, it's just too bad we ended up with Kostitsyn, even though he easily has the talent to be a perennial 30-40 goal scoring 70-80 point forward.
To be honest, I was pretty happy with the pick at the time. Kostitsyn had wrecked most of the 03 top prospects at the U18s (namely Carter and Getzlaf).
It's actually pretty hilarious that a falling BPA was actually what cost us a great player.
Then again, a lot of people hating on Timmins for the 03 draft we're hanging on Steve 'the next Mike Bossy' Bernier's balls.
