The lack of emphasis on skill and skating is what bothers me most about Lombardi. Look throughout his history as a GM in the NHL, not much emphasis places on highly skilled forwards.
This is who Lombardi drafted in SJ, he started in 1996- 2003, those who made it to the NHL

1996
Andrei Zyzuzin
Marco Sturm
Matt Bradley

1997
Patrick Marleau
Scott Hannan
Mark Smith

1998
Brad Stuart
Jonathan Cheechoo
Rob Davison
Mikhael Samuelsson

1999
Jeff Jillson
Niko Dimitrakos
Douglas Murray

2000

No one

2001
Marcel Goc
Christian Ehroff
Ryan Clowe

2002

No one

2003

Milan Michalek
Steve Bernier
Matt Carle
Joe Pavelski


So, skilled forward talent that he drafted, Marleau and Michalek, in the 1st rounds, Pavelski, Clowe, Cheechoo, Samuelsson in the later rounds..
