But of course, the ubiquitous strawman argument.

Forget director of scouting or the janitors union leader and simply answer this: Were this team's needs in the off-season of 2010 a franchise goalie (after having recently acquired a 26-27 y.o. Lehtonen) or was it a puck-moving d-man?

For all the obvious mistakes GM Joe has made ... people are still going to point to the draft.
The draft is ALSO his mistake and ALSO his triumph (should he succeed overall). I'm sure his apologists will be quick to erect a statue and bathe it with milk if the latter should happen.
