I am playing a huge devils advocate since most people see Smith as being awful. Did John Ferguson make any good trades?

His draft history isn't one to brag about. Outside of Selanne he had no luck with 1st rounders. Dale Hawerchuk was the consensus #1 choice meaning every other GM would have taken him 1st overall also. If he would have been a bust at #1 it doesn't reflect on the GM since EVERYONE else in the NHL would have made the same mistake. Hawerchuk was light years better than anyone else available in the draft based on his junior performance.

So back to the advocate. What good trades did John Ferguson make? I understand how smart people are on this forum but how many of you actually are old enough to remember him?
