For me it's Smith and not even close.

The draft mistakes can be said about every GM and scouting staff in history if you look at all the potential picks could have been. And I think some of Furguson's mistakes might have actually been the consensus picks at the time (Babych, possibly Elyniuk as well?).

Plus, the main factor in Ferguson's favor is that he put together the best Jets teams in the history of the Jets 1.0. The 84-85 Jets were the 4th best team in the league and would have had a much better playoff fate had we not had to play the old "divisional" way and run into Calgary and then Edmonton.
