And in 2010 you would have said no to Jordan Hall, Tyler Seguin and Jeff Skinner to pick Alexander Burmistrov?

In 2009 you would have taken Dmitri Kuliov over John Tavares, Victor Hedman, Matt Duchene and others?

In 2008 you would have loved to pick Nikita Filatov ahead of Steven Stamkos, Drew Doughty, Zach Bogosian, Alex Pietrangelo andLuke Schenn?

And in 2007 you would have busted all the trends to reach for Alexei Cherepanov ahead of Patrick Kane and whomever else was there?
Your missing the point, I didn't say to overlook anybody.

You have to know who your targeting to address a major need (star center to be part of our core without overrating anybody) and than aggressive go after them....to minimize the risk, good management would target a few choices, get them and see who pans out.
