This is a big factor on why Horvat was picked, not due to the fact he was the BPA.
I disagree strongly that a compelling argument means that it was the right decision. They are not one automatically one and the same.
I can make a compelling argument for why the Ballard trade had to be made. I can make a compelling argument for why Luongo's contract was a great idea at the time. Does that make either of those decisions good ones, or the right ones?
This is classic Gillis snake-oil.
For non-hockey examples, I can make a compelling argument as to why loosening banking regulations is a great idea. Does that make that the right decision? Given how that cost the US in 2008, probably not.
