This is Timmins' team IMO. So many drafted players on the team.
You can say that for any GM that has been here over Timmins' tenure. The fact of the matter is that the GM gets credit for the job well done of ALL their employees, which includes the scouting and drafting. Just like Bergevin will get props in the future if the team drafts well under Timmins.

Yup pretty similar.
Seems like unless GM's go to extra lengths to improve their teams via trades/signing, you wouldn't credit them for simply hanging on to their assets? Very unfair.
