We give him a ton of credit, but let's look back at his first few drafts:

2009
Leddy - traded
Hackett - traded
Foucault - bust
Fallstrom - traded
Kuemper - great pick
Sallinen - bust
Haula - great pick
Hamburg - bust

2010
Granlund - TBD
Bulmer - looking like a bust
Larsson - traded
Zucker - great pick
Gustafsson - great pick
McKinlay - bust

2011
Brodin - great pick
Phillips - sorry, I don't see it
Lucia - TBD
Seeler - meh
Michalek - bust
Graovac - TBD, having a great year though

Still really damn early, but he's moved a lot of good players and missed on a lot of others.
It sounds like you are counting traded prospects as a negative. It's the exact opposite. If you trade a player, that means there is value in them.
