How can you say either?

Do you know for a fact that both wanted X player, or one wanted X player while the other wanted Y player?

Because we're all fans and not in the actual front office, we can't comment about this. All I'm saying is the ultimate responsibility for drafts/prospects/asset management is on the GM. He gets paid the big bucks for this responsibility. He has the right to fire scouts when they give him bad advice. The President has the right to fire the GM when he doesn't do a good enough job in all respects of his job (some of them mentioned above).

TT is great. When your boss goes against what you're saying or likes to micro-manage you, you can't do your job 100% effectively. Timmins was great. Drafted great players for Gauthier in the first round (Tinordi, Beaulieu). Saying otherwise is ludicrous.
