What you fail to realize is that MOST superstars are drafted in the top 7-8 picks of each draft. It's the rare one in each draft that is discovered outside of those picks (i.E. Giroux). How many of those picks has Timmins had to work with?

Yet he picked McDo, Patches, Price, Subban, Halak. Now if you look at those picks you'll get a clue to why our team has sucked so badly. Our GMs instead of building on Timmins' picks, they took one of them, McDonagh, and gave him as present to Sather in return they got the Latino albatross. If you want to know why the Habs suck go look at what our genius GMs have done for the last 10 years.
