Whereas the scouting under Nonis was, as far as I can make out, a practical joke by a GM that thought he'd be fired after 1 season, while the president didn't catch on to the joke for another 4 years. And the scouting has clearly improved under Gillis, but not enough.
all you have to do is to make the obvious consensuses picks and you will do better than most people. it's these out of the box off the board picks that kills you. like the White/Mallets/Ellington/Not picking Kopitar/ that never seem to pan out for the Canucks.
