The next fact is, we have become a low rider in the standings. How people relate that to how good Pracey drafts is beyond me. If we drafted / traded / acquired / released magnificently over the past three to four years, I bet we wouldn't be picking 2nd and 3rd at the draft (would have been 10th this year).

Lastly, if you ask Duchene if his play improved, remained on par, or regressed this season, I'm sure he'd be player enough to tell you he regressed.

Why we sugar coat these things is beyond me.
How does a head scout get blamed with trading/acquiring/releasing?
