Look carefully. A LOT of those picks are downgrades and the list he gave up is smaller than what he acquired. Then there's also the young players and prospects he shipped out.

In 2008 they didn't have a 2nd. In 2009 they had no 1st or 2nd. In 2010 they had not 1st or 2nd. 2011, no 2nd; they only had a first because Homer nuked the core. Then in 2012 they started keeping picks after Homer blew up the team.

Three years in a row where you're missing high draft picks where the majority of NHL players come from flat out isn't good.
