- GM trading a lot of high picks for players that donít work out
- Poor overseas scouting (when was our last good pick out of Europe?)
- Best pick of the last 5 years didnít want to sign unfortunately

Fans tend to overrate prospects

Phillips has been in the system for 5 yrs and they donít even give him a sniff

His next stop is more the waiver wire than the regular lineup
