Of course he deserves credit. He's the boss. Ultimately they are his decisions to make.

Where this gets cloudy is when people try to pawn off the JOB pick because it doesn't look as good as they want it to.

Absolutely right. Look at all the late round gems the Wings have found over the years. Did they just get lucky with all these picks? I mean, they obviously have great scouts, but they develop their players the right way. Detroit is the model franchise in the league for drafting and developing. That's why they've made the playoffs for 20 straight years.

Daigle wasn't the mistake. If we have the mcdavid pick next year and a team offers us a deal of the same calibre that the Nordiques offered us, i'm giving up the first pick. Same goes for the 2005 first overall pick. Taking Daigle at 1 was a no brainer, But taking the quebec trade was also a no brainer

The drafting mistakes were in the Muckler yrs when he wasted numerous picks on Russian players who never came over or when they did come over they sucked. Imagine if we would have used those picks on other players who would have come to camp & maybe we get another one or two good players who could have made a difference for this organization.

Mesz was awesome that first year. I don't know what happened to him. I thought he was going to be here for a long time.
