JFJ may not have been allowed to rebuild as he apparently went to the board with, but that should not be an excuse for his poor decision making. You have to adapt and work within the parameters given, and he failed miserably at that.
Yes, he did a good job at the draft. However, I personally wouldn't go overboard on that because while a good portion of them have become serviceable, none of them, besides Reimer, have potential star power. Which is fine as some nice pieces have been put in place, but I don't think his drafting should be overblown as if he drafted a major stud (although that goalie in Boston...).
Speaking of which, I will never forgive him for that God awful Rask/Raycroft trade, one in which I hated the second it was made. Then trying to rectify it with the Toskala trade -- those two trades alone set this franchise back a couple years. In between he threw away a 2nd for 17 games of Yanic Perrault.
Thanks for the few guys we have JFJ, but thank goodness you are long gone.
