seeing how we have had a combined 1 NHL game from our top picks in 2009 and 2010 its pretty hard to have any sympathy for him.

if only we had just one of those players

His only solution was trade away our best goal scoring forward for a 3rd pairing defenseman
Cowen and Fowler are squarely on him, since they were drafted immediately after his picks. I love it when his apologists at DBD keep insisting that he fired the guy responsible for Campbell (and Glennie?) and we should let the past go (and yet will rake Hicks through hot coals at every given opportunity), but fact remains that on the draft floor the GM gets to make the final decision. He failed at two attempts at drafting good d-men, if not franchise d-men, and barring sacrificing one of our offensive pieces to get that no.1 d-man, I don't see the problem fixing itself in the near future.
