Why can you not, should that player fulfill the criterion as a BPA whilst addressing your (dire) need?

No one said he is a failure. Only that he's someone we didn't really need when a player like Fowler fell in our lap.

Edit: According to CS rankings, Pickard was ranked over Campbell amongst goalies.

Glennie is a terrible, terrible pick, we all know that. I fail to see how any of that blame could go towards GMJN though. I'd be willing to bet he had very little, if any at all, say in that pick.
To say that he had no say or very little say at all is ludicrous. The team didn't even speak to Glennie. If he had little say, then he should have said "something little" and brought this glaring omission forth and asked his team to think this pick over again. It's not like the scouts told him to **** and sip his latte.
