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.
It wasn't directed at only you, it has been has beaten to death by many others as well. The drafting for our gain hasn't been great, but asset management in regard to first round picks has been great.
Schenn + Simmonds became Richards
Teubert + '11 first became Penner
'13 first and Johnson became Carter
All very valuable pieces down the stretch last year.
