There is the one post topic about re-doing the last five years of Pen draft picks. Ultimately, the moral of the story is that hindsight is 20/20.
Playing that game with DiPietro in mind, Mad Mike Milbury effectively has acquired...
Rick DiPietro, Alexei Yashin, Mark Parrish & Oleg Kvasha
Roberto Luongo, Olli Jokinen, Jason Spezza, Zdeno Chara, Bill Muckalt, and Dany Heatley or Marian Gaborik (drafting in place of DiPietro)
I know that DiPietro is starting to come around, but in the same argument, Jokinen is coming around too - plus Luongo is already 'around.'
Plenty of arguments too - like if Jokinen hadn't met Mike Keenan, then maybe he would still be a bust. Or if they didn't acquire Yashin, then they would have spent on Jagr. Additionally, in defense of Milbury, it has sounded like the Yashin trade may have had some pressure from ownership to make.
