Actually......Timmins does make the decision on who to draft. It has been that way for a while.

Are you saying that it is an absolute that Grigorenko will be picked before all of Galchenyuk, Forsberg, Murray, Trouba and Reilly.

You may be in for a shock.........on the plus side you can chalk it up to experience. As Grant McKagg said, "just because you can rank a guy as #2 doesn't mean you can pick him at #2"......or something like that.
