Well, I have agreed with Vaasa in terms of philosophy with draft selections but I don't necessarily agree with the logic of using other team's picks later as a point of evidence of poor drafting. Either your pick pans out or it doesn't and some combination of picking poorly or developing poorly is the reason why. Suter doesn't become the same player with us as he was Nashville. There are an infinite number of variables that change by changing teams that it's just silly, to me at least, to assume a guy is the same regardless of who drafts him.
