Problem with your theory is that the day we find that Therrien's message doesn,t get through anymore, I can't wait to hear you ask for everybody's head instead of just Therrien's....and we know it won't happen.
You're being very simple with this.

If an organization succeeds, it succeeds due to individual efforts coming together.

If an organization fails, it fails due to individual efforts failing to come together.

If one person is highlighted as the biggest problem in a failure, of course the individual is removed. But that doesn't mean only one person failed. It was still, and always is, a team effort.

When the goalie allows a goal, rarely was it a situation where the only failure was the goalie. Someone had to allow the opposing team puck possession, nobody stripped the puck, nobody defended the puck and then the goalie allowed it to go in. Collective failure. But if it's identified that someone missed their assignment on the ice or the goalie read the play poorly or a forward didn't hustle, you identify those issues.

Back to drafting, it's a team effort. You identify the problems when drafting is bad and remove them. That's why hardly anyone from the 2006 Entry Draft scouting team is still a part of the organization, though the one who is was identified as not the problem.
