I give him credit for getting some assets but we need goaltending and scoring. Maybe these two chips will be moved for some help.
Mainly because he's already fired our Director of Scouting from that draft.

Turris was a consensus top 3 selection. Maloney did partially screw up his development though but at some point there has to be something said about ability and desire. Personally, I see Turris as a player who is one more bad year away from playing in Europe. I just didn't see the creativity to play effectively at center. We saw more from 5 games from Miele on creating offensive chances than we did from Turris over the course of the last 3 years.
