Could well be, but the onus still would fall on Timmins for picking Fischer as the D, instead of, say...

Okay I just went through the draft looking for the best D's drafted immediately after Fischer and the first names I landed on were Jeff Petry and Jamie McBain, some 30 picks later. What a terrible draft for defensemen.
