2008: Colborne,Sauve, Hutchinson, Arniel,Tremblay,Goggin
2009: Caron,Button,MacDermid, Randall,Sexton..
Thats his draft picks from over 5 years ago. How many of those are you confident will be ready to contribute at the NHL level soon? I'm not judging him from 2010 on, but thats 17 picks from 3 consecutive drafts., I think there should have been some return by now. You?
"Latest picks" are the words I used.
People tend to want to talk about the first few years of PC's drafting because they didn't turn out so good for various reasons. Book has some good ideas on why ( sometimes he can be right ). Should those years be talked about solely in the way he's drafted ? Shouldn't it be based on his overall body of work in the draft ? I think so.
Not to sling any mud at other posters ( oh heck , why not ? ), but that's like starting a thread on how the Bruins are not a very good hockey team, based on two weeks of play, while forgetting that they still have one of the best records in hockey because of the rest of the games they've played.
