I wish I could be handed the reins of a roster that was all ready built then be lucky in my drafts and get guys in late rounds that become good.
It's like the Tom Brady in New England deal. Some not intelligent people are like OMG THEIR SCOUTING SO GOOD THEY GOT SUPER BOWL WINNIG QB IN THE 6th ROUND!!!!
when in reality it was LUCK. Same idea in the NHL. The almost "sure things" go in round one or two. After that it's just a guess. Luckily the wings have guess right a lot so far...
They developed him well, put him in a system he could work with, he had a really good mentor in drew bledsoe to help him, and he took advantage of it.
Its not luck to find guys that late that fit your system, thats what scouts and your staff get paid to do.
they lost tom Brady for a full year and went 11-5 with matt Cassel leading them.
Another 7th round quarter back.
Montreal is fast, skilled, and the guys they brought in fit into their system.
As for your ken Holland jabs,
No offense, but that argument is starting to sound like its coming from a spoiled teenager being told no for the first time.
