Compare Timmins' first round performance to that of other teams sometime. He actually does very well there too. He only has that reputation because people are fixated on the 2003 draft year (even though he got a solid NHLer that year) and have unrealistic expectations of first rounders, expecting them all to be impact players when about a third don't even become regular NHLers.

Timmins is also slammed because of the picks he didn't make, cherry-picking the best player available picked after him -- which is tantamount to expecting him to do better than the 29 other teams put together.
