Given the comments Maloney made about our second round picks during the Turris press conference I would say that led to the demise of Gretzky. He also tended to not have a feel for where other teams had players. He nearly panicked on the Visentin selection (Phoenix dealt down to Montreal to pick up an extra pick). The number of 2nd and 3rd round picks on goalies is an embarassment IMO. We wasted a lot of picks finding our goalie of the future. We also gave up a 2nd to move up to take 2nd year eligible Center Tikhonov based on Gretzky's recommendation. Let's not even talk about our Staal selection.
