Too a much lesser extent?

Alexandre Picard. Nikita Filatov. Pascal LeClaire. Trading a pick for Jeff Carter. Those results are equally poor. But Doug cashed in on Rick Nash and a defensman in Rusty Klesla who continues to play 18-20 minutes (when healthy). Scott Howson is still waiting and hoping that one of the players he's drafted turns into a player of their caliber with similar drafting position as what his predecessor had. Which is to say nothing of Howson's overall failure to develop a team.
