The thing is, you can see the difference between Riser and Fletcher. I was critical of Fletcher early on especially with the Leddy and Kobasew trades but his draft picks have shown a lot more success than Riser's.
Rather have a GM that can draft and is willing to trade, even if that means missing on a trade, than GM that can neither draft nor make a trade.
