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. The quote about restocking shelves is a good one. Nieuwy knew he had no d-men, and he did nothing with those picks to get a d-man. That's on him, and it may end up being some of the reason why he's fired this summer if the Stars miss the playoffs.
Whilst heaping all the accolades for Dillon, Smith, Fraser, Chiasson, Oleksiak, etc. etc....because that's just JN's Conn Smythe-winning genius at work.
