I don't think they have the worst record, but the drafts between 2007 and 2016/17 leave a lot to be desired. Shane Churla's tenure has been much better though.
At least you're not trying to get into actual fights over it.
KK , Poehling , Juulsen ,Sherback ,McCarron , Galchebust , Boliou , Tinordi , Leblanc , Fisher , Chipchura ,Kotsitsyn .
Price , Caufield (too young to tell) , Mcdonaugh , Sergachev , Pacioretty didnt make the list .
Those are ALL the first rounder took by Timmins in 17 years . That's not good enough .
That wasn't clear enough .
First year 2003 he took Kotsitsyn when everyone even other staff member would have EASILY took Jeff Carter who byhimself would STILL be relevant TODAY .
2004 Late Chipchura terrible on the talent level but on the line of MANY of his other picks he's good at seing Nhl caliber player lots of late round find . NO SUPERSTAR OFFENSIVELY.
2005 His best . Price out of the blue , better than Martin McGuire that for sure !. 2006 David Fisher while i recall yelling Giroux name in my basement .,, Terrible pick
2007 McDonaugh + Pacciorretty AWESOME no doubt . 2008 nothing . 2009 Leblanc PURE BUST . 2010 .Tinordi cost a second also BUST . 2011 Beaulieu . bad pick (imo)
2012 AG27 Now it's interesting Bergevin was a scout and said he would have took Morgan Reilly but whent with staff decision . Terrible pick if u ask me .
2013 McCarron DESASTROUS PICK , Shea Theodore whent just after and i CANT imagine they didn't think about it ..
2014 Sherback .. MISTAKE again ! 2015 Juulsen i like this pick and to be fair we might never know because of injury ..
2016 Sergachev got Drouin yes GOOD YEAR . 2017 Poehling , he's big , but i doubt he's playing top6 somewhere down the line .. No wow factor
2018 KK im sorry but ATM he's just not on par with Quinn Hugues which SEEM to be perfect to play alongside Weber .. will never know .. Domi + Tkachuck+ Shaw would have been nice also will never know . Point is Timmins must be accountable at some pont and whether u like it or not , he's related to Kk performance FOR LIFE . Meh at this point . Kid look lost on the ice with his 12 foot pole .
Of COURSE HE'S YOUNG and younger than Tkachuck and bla bla bla .. but he's not younger than Tkachuck last year which was SIGNIFICALLY more valuable to his team .
2019 Too early .
I hope i was exaustive enough to your taste . IT'S NOT ENOUGH , it's my opinion .Now f o .
Im a doorman in life , i don't like it but i don,t care about fighting .
