I like Pacioretty but again, not an impact player. Neither is Grabovski or Kostitsyn. They are good NHL players.

Galchenyuk and Gallagher have the potential to be the best picks made by Timmins. Galchenyuk was a no-brainer and Gallagher was a very nice pick.

The problem is that there are far too many players selected by Timmins who have gone nowhere or are just middle of the road NHL players.
He's done a great job for where we've drafted. We've had two top five picks and the jury is still out on one... the other is great.

We got arguably the best (or close to it) player in the draft with Subban and kicked in that entire draft.

You can't expect impact players when you're always drafting 15th or lower and that's where we've usually been. Timmins has done very, very well with what he's had to work with.

Yeah we haven't won a cup, but it's despite Timmins being here not because of it.
