Yup, Tallon was given a lot of prospects...
You're omitting Kulikov.

You're also omitting the fact that Tallon took over directly before a draft in which he had the 4, 33, 36, 50, 59 picks in the first two rounds alone.

He also took over a franchise with a mandate to tear the team down to the ground and rebuild (which netted him the 15 and 25 picks in that draft as well), something few GMs get.

Tallon did well with the picks he had and has done well since but frankly if you couldn't pick up a handful of good-to-great prospects out of two truly dismal seasons then you're not fit to run an NHL team.
