I cant really blame Nieuwendyk for Glennie. He must have had very little info and trusted his guys. Lets remember the Stars didnt have any good RWers at that point either.

Philosophically I dont believe teams should be taking goalies as early as Campbell was taken. The goalie position is so dynamic with very few of them being consistently good/great from year to year. The point being I was never going to agree with that pick.

Lets also not forget that beyond the first round we got some damn fine prospects in both those drafts. Do we knock GMJN for Glennie and not give him credit for Chiasson, Reilly Smith and Tomas Vincour? I think a good GM has to trust his scouts on all the picks, not just the later ones.
