How about 76 for 25?

As for the Fisher pick, he's on record saying they picked the guy because their talent pool on D was low at the time. He also added that they typically go for bpa and would return to that strategy since it gave them better results.
If this was the case, then I can't blame him for going with AKost. Rest of the staff plus probably Gainey went with AK46 instead of Getzlaf, then they're the idiots.
PS I never said fire Timmy because of 1 bad pick in 2003 (his first on the job as Director of Amateur Scouting I believe). In fact, I would check myself into an asane asylum if I IMPLIED (never said) firing Timmins.
His 2nd through 4th and beyond draft selections are ridiculously sexy.
TT for Ass GM!
