Sporting teams that are successful are that way because management uses the draft and trades to address Specific Needs of their team.

That is why we have an overabundance of small players right now. We were going after the BPA and it happened to be smallish forwards. Now, we are wondering why we do not have a team with big and talented skill players.

BPA is the rabbit hole that we went down and are now finding it very hard to get out of. BPA is also a strategy that now has 10 years of data to prove that it is an extremely flawed strategy.

Timmins needs to change his approach or be replaced with someone who has an idea on how to build a winning team based upon needs......both immediate and projected.
What are you talking about?

The guy has had mid round picks to work with and he's still pulled out gems. In '05 we get arguably the best player not named Crosby despite tons of heat. In '07 we basically win the draft and pull out one of the best players in that draft out of the 2nd round as well as Max (24th) and McD outside the top ten.

C'mon man... you are being silly here.
