That would be fine if they indeed use the pick for more tangibles. I'm not convinced Tambo will. The easiest thing for any GM to do is nothing and let things play out. If you get 'lucky' and something falls in your lap, you look like a genius (Smyth?). If not, oh well, there was nothing there and we picked a nice player "that may never play in the NHL". It just seems we rarely make these moves.
Is it the right one? I guess we'll find out. My only point is I don't believe Tambo and company are doing much work behind the scenes and just relax and let things come to them. Hell, I could do that and pick the players off McKenzie's list. Should I be paid half a million a year for it?
