Kristo was an '08 pick. I'd suggest taking a look at this site,

My bad.

However, if Gainey is GM in May and draft is in June, then yes Gainey had everything to do with the draft.

Who is ultimately responsible for drafting? The Director of Amateur Scouting or the General Manager?

This is my point. According to rumour, everyone but TT on the scouting staff wanted AK and i'm assuming BG went with the majority. In hindsight, we could have had better players, but oh well; c'est la vie.

I think our development of our prospects and management of our assets were our biggest weaknesses since the Gainey era.
