so our home grown 7th rounders number pavs, murray, demers, bruan, and mclaren, which exceeds our homegrown 1st AND 2nd rounders combined.
McLaren doesn't belong in the category of 7th round gems.

You're also discounting all the 1st rounders we traded away. Thornton cost us 2 1st rounders, 3 for burns, 2 for Havlat (through Heatley), we wasted 1 on Campbell.

If you want to argue that he's overpaid and we would have been better off not signing him for the amount we did, fine, but to suggest the 7th was a hefty price to pay is ridiculous.
