To be fair, Lennart Petrell is a perfect example of that.

Three guys were brought in and he has succeeded. Tyrvainen and Tulupov were examples of the ones that fall through the cracks. When you expect a GM to find diamonds in the rough through drafting and free agent signing, it's going to take time and more often than not, you're going to witness failure.
