I read this as him being very sarcastic when I first saw it.

It wouldn’t surprise me to see him utilized in a similar role. Maroon worked with McDavid, and he was a 6th round plug before Chiarelli poached him from Anaheim.

Not saying it should happen, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Trotz tried it.

That will most likely be extremely short lived if attempted.

Never said he was a top six scorer but he was a 1st round pick so he has some talent especially compared to ross johnston
- Upstate_isles

So was Hickey. Wilson 16th, Hickey 4th. So, uh, yeah.

Still shocks me Hickey went 4th and it was Lombardi making the pick for the Kings unless that was all the scouts.

Are you sure he wasn't being a wise arse when saying that?

Don't know, but it wasn't a good one. Just goes to show that Snow isn't the only one to make bad picks. Of course Lombardi, after realizing his mistake, dumped him and Snow played garbage picker.

Yep! I remember Bill made a lot of bad picks after the dynasty. That was after Jimmy D left for the Wings. Jimmy was key in setting up that dynasty with the drafts.

I mean, if someone was drafted at #4 but never played a single game for that team for 7 years and then got waived, wouldn't that ring some kind of alarm bell?

It should hockeyman but this was Garth's MO. I do not mind a team taking a chance on someone but to continue to keep the player on and thinking he is more than he really is becomes a problem.

That was the ego. "I took this player and he's good. I don't care what anyone else thinks" was his whole thought process. He could never realize (or never wanted to admit) when he was wrong. Never wanted to cut bait with anyone he liked.

Garth had real trouble letting players go. He got attached to them like they were his kids. All that loyalty and believe got Garth one playoff win in 12 years.

Firing Garth Snow probably was a good move because they got Lamoriello. I just hope he stops giving out all those bad contracts.

I hope so as well. I'm wondering if Trotz had some input in these signings as well? Would not shock me.

Hopefully it's for 5 years and has a NTC/NMC because it would just make me tune out at that point and put me out of my misery

I have been saying forever this team was stacked with talent and the coaching was terrible. If nothing else this year I lose that excuse. If Pulock, Ho Sang, Brock, and others that have under-performed continue to do so under Trotz I will be both shocked and really annoyed. This year we finally have a real coach and he is surrounding himself with real bench coaches. This team should do a lot better than most are thinking.

As of now PP specialist Scott Gomez is still there so hes not quite surrounded by real coaches yet.
