Now find multiple teams who've selected star players better than then that late (7th round+) during Timmins' tenure as head scout from 2003+. After all, to quote you, "Top scouts pick hidden stars. They may miss all the time, but they find the stars and pick them. TT does not, and never has, found a hidden star, ever."

Surely you won't have much trouble finding a boat load of teams that have more than two.
What is a hidden star anyway? We find visible stars? The ones that drop to 2nd rounders, 9th rounders and so on. It doesn't count though, because although Giroux was a 1st rounder, he was a hidden star, but PK, Pacioretty, Mcdonagh, Price, Halak and others, who are 1st line caliber players in the NHL, well everyone knew I guess, they were visible stars.
