In less than 5 years we traded away more than 15 players or picks from the first 3 rounds with no less than 5 in each round. Yup, sounds like Snider is a man of his word.
I agree with the sentiment that we should keep our picks as much as possible unless the right deal comes along. I'm not sure if you're just using the Hartnell/Timonen deal as an example of Snider's hypocrisy but that was a good deal at the time and even now with hindsight. I'm fine with deals like that one and the Pronger one. I'm not fine with ones like the Eminger and Versteeg one though. They both made no sense at the time and further proved that with hindsight.
