Are those the only two examples you can come up with?

Lots of teams passed on Claude Giroux. 21 teams to be exact. Should they all fire their respective scouting teams?

Going into the draft AK was one of the most highly touted players. He was one of the youngest players to play at the WJC (15 years old) and was the third ranked European skater going into the draft. A lot of experts were saying he could contend for a place in the top-5 had it not been for his epilepsy.

What about 2007 though, when Timmins picked Pacioretty, Subban and McDonough all within the first two rounds? Or in 2005, where 4/7 of his picks ended up playing more than 200 games, including his 6th and 7th round picks. See, I can pick and choose which information I share and which I don't.

There's no excuse for such shoddy commentary man, not in the age of the internet. All the info you could ever want to know about the draft is just a few clicks away. Do some research next time you want to come in here.
