Rielly was a top five pick, you're not doing your job if you didn't walk away with someone who could be the top player in his draft, and it was only one damn pick.

We're not getting our money's worth out of many guys, other than Bergmann, so fix it...
I'd have to agree with a demotion. I can't see the Leafs scouting staff walking away from a draft with the kind of haul and imagination even a team like Buffalo did with Grigensons and Grigorenko without the benefit of a top ten pick. I can't imagine a GM in their right mind who'd listen to Morrison go to bat for a prospect or two and engineer a couple of trades to satisfy his scout the way Regier did in 2012. The guy simply doesn't have the credibility or track record. I mean, Tyler Biggs, are you kidding me?
