sure, there are missing pieces presently... but we'll never know if their were no trade partners, if free agents simply preferred to go to Toronto (mcclement).

Clearly, Hecht was a fall back option... so clearly they attempted to address the issue in other ways.
I like what his scouting department has done over the last four-five years. That said, scouts often transcend the longevity of the man at the top of the department. I'm not advocating throwing out the entire hockey department staff, but making a change at the top specifically both at GM and behind the bench.
