There is no excuse for the Campbell pick. A year had passed. I don't care who the scouts were. Picking a goalie there was his decision.

It is being an apologist to absolve him of blame for picks made on his watch. Nieuwy didn't scout those players, but he signed off on the picks knowing what positions those players played.
Bernhardt ... a goalie ... told him Campbell was Top 3 in the draft. I can't believe he trusted his director of scouting ... and to think Fowler is essentially the next Pietrangelo and Campbell is barely hanging on in the AHL.

I honestly don't care anymore. It really is one of the silliest arguments on this board. The draft process is straightforward, and people will think what they want. For all the obvious mistakes GM Joe has made ... people are still going to point to the draft.
