I know that Gainey has just taken over and I recall hearing that Gainey wasn't going to have anything to do with the draft. I also remember Savard speaking highly of the playoffs that Urquhart just had. As for the picks in general, Timmins was brought in by Savard since they worked together with the Sens, so I would assume he had a lot of say with Savard at the time of the '03 draft.
As for Kostitsyn, I know that Timmins scouted him a ton, I recall hearing that he saw Kostitsyn over 40 times so I'd wager he had input on that pick.
