My take: Timmins has an unquestionable ability to draft nhl players. The sheer volume of players playing in the nhl especially given that the habs generally draft middle of the pack is outstanding. He's drafted almost every single type of player of player who can think of except that offensive superstar.Unfortunately, so called "fans" of hockey only care about offensive superstars and can't appreciate anything else and this is the only reason why Timmins isn't given the credit he deserves.

Anyone who thinks Timmins is a problem is out to lunch. Is he infallible...no? But he is doing a fantastic job and the habs are very very very lucky to have him on board.
