A couple of Tallon's drafts turned out to be really bad drafts overall. Especially 2007. Of course, that may turn out to be the case for some of Stan's draft classes too....time will tell.

But in the end...it's the same scouts drafting for both of these guys. GM's are best judged on their signings (both free agent and internal) and trades.
