Timmins is by far the best at getting sleepers in late rounds.

Plekanec, Halak, Streit,Emelin just to name a few.
Plekanec was drafted before Timmins joined.

Halak was a Melancon find who begged the team to use its last pick on him.

Streit was actually a Gauthier find. They drafted him, but the truth is that he had impressed in the worlds and wasn't scouted by amateur scouts, he was scouted by pro scouts (ie Gauthier's field at the time). We only used a draft pick on him because it insured the rights, we could have signed him instead since he was old enough to just be signed as a FA.

I do like the Bozon pick though.
