I was wondering if any owners have their GMs list the players, other GMs selected, they they never would have selected, to get a better idea of their GMs predictive ability.
It's really difficult to determine or interpret GM success.

In Columbus, Scott Howson was just canned, and plenty of people around the league (and within our own fanbase) made it sound like he was some type of simian creature. And yet when you look at the draft record, it's very good. When you look at his trade record, it's very good, dare I say unusually good. And yet...somehow the results simply weren't there on the ice.
