Fergie was an interesting case: a really old school GM. He had a terrific eye for talent, and drafted well on the whole... he was responsible for the Sens picking Alfredsson in the late rounds, too.
I am not sure how you can say all of this... Smith was the one who drafted Tkachuk/Zhamnov/Khabibulin who were the core of our team from a prospect standpoint.
He made better draft choices overall than Ferguson and the player selected after the Jets didnt have the careers as the player selected after Ferguson did.
And please explain to me the eye for talent that Ferguson had with the Jets?
Hawerchuk was the consensus #1 pick so he is automatically eliminated.
