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.
In fairness, he did some of that to get Pronger. And that almost got us a cup. And yes, before Pronger got hurt he was slowing down but he still had a 45 point pace his 2nd last year and had 12 points in 13 games in his last season.
Also, when you are always buyers and in the playoffs, you never recoup picks.
