Look at past drafts, what pick do you question the most?

Conversation over, again.
I don't know why I am subjecting myself to your perpetually tangential remarks but Im going to give it one more shot.
Yes, Vokoun and Sully meant as much to the Preds as MSL did to Tampa, if not more. You don't win a Cup without being very good already… so without MSL, Tampa is still a very good team, and could possibly have still won the Cup(its not like they didn't have VL, Richards, Khabibulin, and a lot of other good players)
but if you go back and remove Vokoun and never trade for Sully, do you really think the Preds make the playoffs n 03-04? And if that doesn't happen, do you think we have a prayer of signing Kariya, Arnott, Dumont.. the players who made us one of the top teams in the West for the next few years?
No, it didn't make us a Cup team, but those moves had as great an impact on our trajectory as a team as MSL did on Tampa.
