Given the moves made in the front office this summer, it seems like Paul Holmgren doesn't think Paul Holmgren drafts well.
If you trade a guy you drafted in a hockey trade, that's still a good draft pick. Dennis Seidenberg was a good draft pick, they just made a dumb trade that really hurt when the Flyers (under Holmgren's volition if you believe Bob Clarke) tried to replace Kim Johnsson with Nolan Baumgartner.
Rating it on sheer number of games played is still not the way to do it. Which guys make a real impact, and especially at the value of their pick. When Colorado drafted Scott Parker in the 1st round, was that a good pick because he played for 8 years in the league, or is it a bad pick since he was a forward who never scored more than 2 goals in a season.
