Rhetorical question here.

Is everyone completely happy with the drafting this team has seen over the last 10 years?

I mean, we do have some very solid players, but still lacking that one legit 1st liner or that offensive catalyst on D seems concerning.

Also, the passivity that permeates most, not all, the drafted players I find alarming.

I guess the real question I have is, what role did and does Gorton have with regards to the players we target at the Drafts?

I see people talk about Gorton's role is how the Bruins look today and think to myself that we are a long ways off from being as physically stubborn as they are. Talent match up may be even, but they have a group of players that get after the game and don't give a frickin inch.

We are nothing like that. So if Gorton has had a big hand in formulating this current team, then I'm not sure I trust him as the GM of this team. Seems like we are going to see more of the same passive personalities getting drafted.

I'd hate that.
