I think the two issues are tied together (individual selections do lead to larger problems) but I still contend the majority of the problems come from a flawed systematic approach to it all. It's one of the reasons I'm intrigued by Housley's selection because as a high school hockey coach, he should have a lot of time to scout all the players, NCAA and CHL.
