I don't think you can judge a GM based on drafting. Drafts are a crapshoot. You never know how a player is going to turn out. There are endless examples of players who were taken in the first round that have never materialized to anything in the NHL.

I think you have to judge a GM based on players he aquired through free agency/waivers and the trades he has made. There is a lot more control in those instances, and the GM basically knows what he is getting in return and what he is giving up.

That said, drafting Bautin has to be one of the worst draft choices in NHL history.
