Rychel blew it with the import draft - He thought SSM would roll over again and pass on Tolchinsky and he'd get the guy he wanted. Just like he thought Barrie would pass on Kerby I guess. He isn't proactive and takes other teams operating in their own best interest for granted. Choosing McCann over Ho-Sang isn't much, if any, real drop - but Tolchinsky vs whatever was remaining was a sizable difference.

And given what London had to pay to get Pete's pick outright it's painful that Warren didn't look to move up to guarantee the pick. Rather than paying that modest price he wanted to try and take advantage of the other teams by having Tolchinsky try to force his way to the Spits and thus have to give up nothing to get him.
