There's little use having one of the best head scouts in the business if you don't give him the picks to work(much less trade the awesome picks he makes for garbage, like Gainey did with McDonagh). I'm convinced that the 2008 pick would've been Carlson.

Could you imagine the position we'd be in if we had McDonagh, Subban, and Carlson?

It's moves like these that convince me that little to no convex optimization, linear/quadratic programming, or game theory used in the making of hockey decisions.
Seems like a Timmins pick, but all I know is Gardiner (who went 8 picks earlier) and Deschamps were players that they were really high on.

Someone posted something at that time that said Timmins was really high on Carlson too, but I'm really not sure.
