I guess you have to give Dean Lombardi credit for being able to develop players. I mean I haven’t seen many players out of San Jose who are superstars. Probably the two strongest ones in the organization that Doug Wilson drafted are Logan Couture and Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Marleau was drafted by Lombardi but I can’t say that was a good choice considering the long term results. Doug Wilson is good at getting star players from other teams and keeping them though. Case in point: Joe Thornton and Dan Boyle. Thornton even took a pay cut to stay here. I guess it is debatable as to which skill is more valuable.
