Don't get me wrong, that draft will always be a fail. IMO even if a player ends up having some success 6-8 years after being drafted (as a 24-26 year old) it shows that the scouts were at least right enough to see NHL talent. I rather have very slow developing eventual NHLers as our busts than players that never see a NHL game.

PG is a ****ing godsend compared to gainey.
Please don't act like you were perfectly fine with Gainey before the Gomez trade...are people really willing to wait until Gauthier does his own rendition of the Gomez trade (which he was a key managerial member for but of course it means nothing to you) before finally realizing he's not a good GM.
