You could pick apart every GM in the history of sports like this. How about every GM the year Lidstrom was drafted at the end of the draft? We could go on and on about even the best GM's in the game missing on guys that turned out to be better than their own picks. He was a bad drafter for the most part, I nor really anyone else is going to argue that. To blanket-statement him as the sole screwer-upper (yeah, I just said that) of the future is a bit off. People need to just let it go. He did some good things in his own right but all any detractors want to point out ever is the negative, which there no doubt is plenty of.
