Disappointed because of the narrow scope of his drafting philosophy which results in us passing over some higher upside if risky players. E.g hishon over Etem or Silas (who wasn't even signed) over pulkkinen.

Don't get me wrong, Pracey has made some great picks particularly in 2009 and is definitely great at what he does, but take out duchene and Landeskog from his drafting record for being such high picks and his record is probably a little overrated by posters here. That said, he didn't have a 2nd or 3rd to work with last year or a 1st/4th this year. If he has a full complement of picks again this year perhaps we will see another strong draft.
