I know some people will continue to be blindly stubborn about blaming or even giving credit to GM Joe Nieuwendyk for the drafts. Hopefully a few might change their mind.

From Heika chat:

Q: Does GM Joe Nieuwendyk actively scout any games in the NHL, AHL, or amateur leagues (CHL, NCAA, etc)? Has he been to any games of interest recently?

A: Not really that much. He will go see the Texas Stars (I think he was in Houston Tuesday) and will watch other NHL games (he saw the Leafs when he was in Toronto at the GM meetings), but he is with the Stars on most days (even on the road). I think he wants to be with this team as much as possible and is trusting that the scouting staff will get the other information he needs.
