Every draft, you'll find some guys drafted very late in the draft having decent careers. But a guy like Datsyuk falling so low in the draft doesn't happen every year. Out of the last 10 years, the Habs under Timmins have certainly done very well for themselves in the latter rounds. The one guy that pops to mind is Jamie Benn, who was drafted in the 5th round in 2007 and who has "star" potential (or could be considered as one already). But it would be hard to argue against the job Timmins did in the 2007 draft.

Kudos to you for admitting that you may have jumped to conclusions and for not taking the easy way out. I can definitely appreciate someone who doesn't try to take the tone up a notch when he can't find a proper counter-argument.
Agreed. I wish people would do this more.
