As for Hall, RNH, and Yakupov, all 3 were consensus top picks. Even if he would have gone with Seguin and Landeskog, that wouldn't have been terrible either, but that's neither here nor there. The point is, #1 overall is not where you earn your stripes as a scout in my opinion - it's outside of the top 10 and the later rounds. You seem to believe he employed some other worldly insight leading up to the Hall/RNH/Yakupov picks. I think they were pretty much no brainers.
Sorry Hoogar, I was merging two posts into one.
My point on the criticism on Stu was at the general thread, not at your post.
