The point is, who gives a **** anymore? The ultimate goal has been achieved while being able to keep the main pieces of this team (Kopitar, Quick, Richards, Carter, Doughty and hopefully Brown this summer) intact moving forward.
So, good on Both Darryl and Dean. Well deserved.
I'm not pointing it out to *****, I'm just noting the irony to the pick. Yes the draft sucked, but let's also be honest, if DL had elected to just go with the consensus choice (Alzner) instead of the home run, we'd still have a much better asset.
Like I said, I'm a huge DL supporter, but the fact does remain his one weakness in my opinion is his first round drafting record. Take away Drew and it's pretty weak.
