Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Surgery Instruments Surgeons Operation Med

Some folks opt to undergo plastic surgery for cosmetic and reconstructive reasons.

Both can have different purposes, depending on the individual concerned and the area to be treated. It’s critical for those who aim to look like Beauty rather than the Beast to carefully weigh the options (such as the plastic surgeon to select ) and know about the risks involved. Most importantly, they should remain true to themselves, and respect who they are. The following are the top reasons for selecting cosmetic surgery. It is important to bear in mind the motivations behind reconstructive plastic surgery can be different from those in the listing.

To boost self-esteem and enhance self-confidence

When this is capable of fostering self-esteem and enhancing self-confidence, then this is well worth taking.

To delay the signs of aging

A lot of people feel that their physical appearance does not reflect what they feel inside. Going through plastic surgery can make them look younger than their age. Though such procedures won’t block the process of aging, it can certainly boost their confidence, and sort of unite their inner vitality and outer appearance.

To create a loved one happy

Plastic surgery can’t fix what is probably a more serious problem, and whether the reason for choosing it is to meet someone else, it isn’t a good one.

Vanity

There are people who would feel more comfortable with their bodies if they shifted one part of their body or another. Cosmetic surgery to improve themselves is a good reason to choose it, particularly if they can function in a way that they always wanted to.

Another element that encourages individuals to undergo cosmetic surgery is to look more like their favorite Hollywood star however, this reason isn’t good enough. It is okay for Hollywood celebrities since they may need plastic surgery – because their job calls for it and as a significant career move. However, for people who like to look like their idols, they are motivated by the wrong reasons.

Plastic surgery is a means by which alterations can raise the happiness of the men concerned and care for the areas of choice. For those that are choosing plastic surgery, whether it is an eyelid surgery, facelift, rhinoplasty or another, after making their final decision, they ought to search for a reputable plastic surgeon and proceed with the process. Each patient will undergo a screening procedure accompanied by their surgeon to be sure they are mature, emotionally stable and responsible enough to go through cosmetic surgery. Thereafter, the cosmetic centre will help them every step of the way towards their new look.

Understanding the Rules of Composition

Turkey, Nature, Landscape, Kaçkars

With the advent of the cell phone and tablet, everyone seems to be taking photographs, and for many people all they want is a record of a holiday or family event or a particular moment in their lives that they are delighted to share with their friends and perhaps to look at some years later as it’ll bring back a fond memory of times past.

So we dispense with our point and shoot camera and stop using our telephones and invest at a reasonably decent camera. Personally, although I had been taking pictures for nearly 50 years, I only took it up as a serious hobby in 2010 when I bought a Panasonic DMC-FZ38 before visiting Kenya on my initial Safari.

To start with, I looked at the 128 page guide, hardly understood a word, so set the camera to car and went off on safari. I took some great photos but it was only after I joined a local camera club and began to learn about the art of makeup which I started to really look through the lens and think about what I was doing, rather than simply pointing the camera at an object and pressing the camera.

All digital camera manufacturers spend lots of time and money on software to help the consumer get the correct camera settings to capture that shot and, as I did originally, if you place your camera on auto, the huge majority of time you will get technically good outcomes. However the one thing that no camera is able to do, no matter how much money you’ve spent buying it, is write a photo that’s appealing to the eye.

Putting it into its very basic form, composition can be said to be the best way to produce a photo that’s aesthetically pleasing to the viewer. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Google”composition in photography” and you come up with these results as:-

5 Elements of Composition in Photography
5 Easy Composition Guidelines
The 10 principles of photo composition (and why they work)
12 Rules for Effective Composition in Photography: etc., etc.!

While you will undoubtedly learn by reading all of those articles, (and I would suggest that you do in time), I will focus on a few basic rules that I follow. Before I go further, though some of these are called principles, remember rules are there to be broken. What I am attempting to do is to encourage you to consider what you are trying to achieve when looking through the viewfinder. I will start then with something that you have probably already come across:-

Basically, if you envision a photo divided into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, the principal subject of the image should be where a vertical line cross a horizontal one.

Many modern cameras allow you to put a grid in the viewfinder that can be used to set the object where two lines intersect. While we are talking about the Rule of Thirds, it is generally best to place the horizon on one of the thirds, as opposed to in the centre of the frame, dependent on whether the main factors of interest are in the skies or on the floor.

Leading Lines

These lead the viewers eyes to the picture to the major subject or on a trip through all of the picture. Examples of leading lines might be a path wandering through the picture, a fence line, a meandering road or a stream or river.

Symmetry

To demonstrate that the principles are no more than guidelines, the following one contradicts the Rule of Thirds. If your image is symmetrical, then it might benefit from being centred either on the horizontal, or vertical centre line. This works particularly well for reflections

Rule of Space

This principle is talking about giving the subject in the photo, space to move in the frame. This especially applies to animals and vehicles. The object should have the most distance in front of it, rather than be right up to the border of frame, giving it nowhere to go.

Rule of Odds

Generally , it’s believed that photos with an odd number of subjects is more visually attractive and natural looking than those with an even number, in which the viewers eyes may flick around the image, unsure of where to settle. I often use the rule of odds particularly if taking a close up of flowers or so on.

I hope I have given you a brief insight into makeup and that when you next look through your viewfinder you’ll at least stop and think for a few seconds at what you are looking at and how the shot may be improved. But just remember, these principles, and all the others you will encounter, are only guide lines to assist you go in the right direction, they’re not railway tracks that you need to adhere to rigidly.

Pets Can Help With Depression

Dog Model French Bulldog View Dog Dog Dog

For centuries, some animals, mainly dogs, have been mankind’s best friends. Therefore, psychiatrists and psychologists suggest getting a pet to help relieve mental tension and reduce depression symptoms.

When it’s their sixth sense or the unconditional love they provide, pets can provide a great way to increase our mental well-being and avoid depression-like thoughts.

The curative power of our pets, ensures that individuals who might not have strong social support can get an easy way to keep their emotions stable.
Research findings suggest that senior adults who had pets as their companions revealed no or minimal signs of depressions versus adults who lived alone. Studies also suggest that seniors with pets required minimal medical services and stay satisfied and optimistic through most part of the later years.

Pets gives a sense of unconditional acceptance, affection, love and constant companionship. These emotions help develop a better sense of self and a reduction in negative emotions like anxiety or depression.

Touching/petting your pet, taking care of its needs and interacting regularly with it also play an essential role to boosting the oxytocin levels in the brain. According to a survey, roughly 74% of pet owners detected notable mental health improvements after acquiring a pet. Therapy pets and animals are great ways to tackle social isolation, loneliness and feelings of unworthiness.

Various Pets Have the Same Calming Effect
When searching for the best pet that will help you overcome stress and depression, you may either choose a dog or a cat. Fish and birds work too since some people like to look after a bird or a fish, depending on their lifestyle and psychological needs.

While dogs enable you to remain socially active, cats can also be ideal for reducing depression with their playfulness. Regardless of the creature you choose, the connection between you and your pet aids in reducing depression levels and helps allow you to live a normal life.

Owning a dog makes it possible to socialize with other dog owners. You also get a reason to step out of the house when you take your dog for a walk. This lets you’re socially active and less withdrawn. The more you connect to the outside world, the less depressed you are feeling.

Moreover, petting your pet has the same calming effect as listening to soothing music or indulging in aromatherapy. Most people report that the softness of the cat’s fur ends in a sudden drop of depression levels and has a dramatic effect on calming the nerves down.

These emotions lead to better mental health and also help regulate decent blood pressure levels and a well-maintained heartbeat. Not only can you experience happiness in the presence of pets, you may even feel accountable and responsible which will help make your life feel more fulfilling.

An Analysis: Can A resident Pardon Himself?

United States Of America Usa Flag Politica

In so doing, these supposedly educated, and educated, women and men, regarded in most cases as celebrities, are affirmed in their contentions by huge followings of the fans, comprising a great many of the women and men over eighteen years old that are eligible to vote. None the less, are these pundits and commentators right in their presumptions? Yet, exactly like the generalized power and caveat supplied by the Framers in Article I, Section VIII into the republic’s Legislative branch requiring the Congress to legislate laws which are only”necessary and proper” to the implementation of the particular and exclusive legislative powers set forth in Article I, Section VIII, which has, since 1790, been wrongly and flippantly translated to mean, rather, laws that are”convenient and popular,” the generalized power of the President to pardon in Article II, Section II, Clause I,”… and he shall have the power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment” has been speciously interpreted to mean what it wasn’t intended to mean.

The honored Framers of the U.S. Constitution were many of the exact same wise and sensible men who had included the First and Second Continental Congresses, who had presided over the Revolutionary War, proclaimed the Declaration of Independence in the creation of a new nation, and forged the Articles of Confederation. These men weren’t dumb and prone to flights of fantasy and illogical presumptions. To put it differently, George III presumed that he was above the law, because he flouted justice and natural law. The British Parliament was made to go along with all the boy-king’s adolescent whims of superiority. For that reason, and for the reasons of law and justice, the Framers placed in the U.S. Constitution’s Article II, Section II a restriction on the pardoning power of a U.S. President. In the first place, a President couldn’t pardon himself. Why? The very specific caveat regarding cases of impeachment made it very clear that national officers who may only be removed from their offices by impeachment, such as presidents, vice-presidents, national judges, etc. could not be pardoned for their crimes before, or after. the impeachment proceedings were conducted while they were still in office. Since a U.S. President, while in office, cannot be removed except through the impeachment process, it is extremely clear that the President cannot pardon himself. Pardons can only be given by U.S. Presidents to felons indicted, tried, and convicted of crimes against the United States, who were exempt from impeachment.

In the very absurd case of President Richard Nixon, who quite clearly committed high-crimes, based upon the evidence adduced against him, and would have likely been federally indicted and convicted following his resignation from the presidency, President Gerald Ford pardoned his predecessor illegally. Nixon had been accused, but not convicted of his alleged crimes. Therefore, the pardon for Nixon should have been based upon offenses for which he would have been convicted had been indicted by a federal grand jury, arrested, and tried in federal court following his resignation. A U.S. President can’t pardon a person based only on accusations. Just like the First U.S. Congress had permitted President George Washington to issue the first unconstitutional executive order, ordering the construction of a federal mint, instead of reprimanding him for going against the Constitutional separation of powers, Congress and the majority of the individuals simply sat back and allowed Ford to illegally pardon Nixon; and all the while Ford was proceeding contrary to the letter of the U.S. Constitution, the spirit of John Adams was crying out from the grave that”the American republic republic is a nation of laws, rather than of men.”

There’s also another matter of pure common sense that applies in thoroughly understanding that a U.S. President cannot reasonably pardon himself. No person in an executive government role should have the ability to pardon himself. Such a deleterious power is one that usually resides in the port folio of a tyrant or dictator. Common sense dictates this reasoning. It’s been long established in State law that State governors don’t have the State constitutional power to pardon themselves, putting themselves above the law, and State governors are exactly what the U.S. Presidents are to the federal government. In the very first instance of presidential impeachment, President Andrew Johnson, who replaced Abraham Lincoln after he was assassinated, never considered a pardon for himself, and the issue wasn’t considered by Congress. If the comprehensive historical record of the legislative acts of 1868 is inspected, the process of impeachment was the only constitutional way of removing a sitting President, and Andrew Johnson accepted the full brunt of this impeachment and was acquitted in trial, on May 28, 1968, by the U.S. Senate by one vote. The next and most recent attempt to impeach a President, the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, was successfully started in December of 1998 and ended-up with a U.S. Senate acquittal in February of 1999. During that time-frame, neither Clinton, a lawyer, nor his inner circle of legal advisors had never contemplated a self-pardon, and history reveals that Clinton was extremely worried about a conviction vote in the Senate.

The U.S. Constitution remains fragile and delicate document of federalism and of their freedom and freedom ordained through the proper maintenance of its established rules, procedures, and procedures. That the legislative, executive, and judicial principles, processes, and procedures of the glorious U.S. Constitution have been egregiously and pragmatically changed in execution with no modification procedure over the 20th Century is factual and true. The way those rules, procedures, and procedures were understood in 1790 is the way they are understood and implemented in 2018, and people wonder what’s happened to the government and economy of the American republic. The reading of this Article II, Section II pardoning power of a U.S. President by designing feds and the cockeyed presumptions conjured-up in the minds of these pragmatic individuals that Presidents have the power to pardon themselves is as good of an example of those lurid changes as may be brought to the immediate light of day.

As was established redundantly during the previous twelve months of special prosecutorial investigation, President Donald Trump has done no wrong as speciously alleged by the innovative liberal Democrats. Hence, President Trump would have no reason to look for an unconstitutional attempt to pardon himself, to place himself on the same level with Barack Obama, who issued, with impunity, numerous unlawful executive orders to bypass the Constitutional Legislative procedure.

In order to make sure that prohibited misinterpretations of the U.S. Constitution are censured and prohibited, a Constitutional convention of the States, under the power given to States by the Framers in Article V of the U.S. Constitution, should be convened by the jurisdiction of two-thirds of the State legislatures so as to propose new amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and to repeal certain others, by which actions the intent of the honored Framers will be set indelibly in rock, then and forever, so as to restore what has been desecrated by pragmatic women and men who have sought to undermine the economic, financial, and governmental principles, procedures, and procedures of the U.S. Constitution. That this might be carried out really soon is my humble prayer.

In a republic comprised of over 312 million citizens, with an eligible electorate of over 150 million U.S. citizens, there are roughly as many aberrant minorities and followings as you may imagine that believe and practice, according to their own personal freedom, immorality and legal, but disgusting, reprobacy. The USA is a complex society where good and decent people can bask in the sunshine of moral and virtuous endeavors, and reap the rewards of such pursuits; while evil men and women freely plot and conspire to commit offenses against those good and decent people and their land.

Mark Levin, with whom I mainly agree, has stated that the majority of the U.S. citizens of 21st Century America do not know what freedom actually means; and I wholeheartedly agree with him on that point. Liberty is not statism, or government control over the daily lives of Americans. Liberty, as Henry Ward Beecher so aptly stated, is the soul’s right to breathe, and the essence of American independence lies in a proper rendering of the text of the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights, which were derived from that terrific Declaration of Independence, which declared the natural rights of all free men and women, and the content of the much earlier document that place in order English justice and common law, the Magna Carta. Liberty cannot be adequately expressed in words, but in the refreshing sense that the human spirit is free from government suppression.

Christmas Decoration Ideas

Christmas Bauble Red Ball Celebration Chri

Planning to hit the street this Christmas with your family? Surely, you’d want to add some holiday cheer to your rolling house. From using bows and ribbons on the walls to hanging light chains round the windows, and from sprucing up the living room with a decorative Christmas tree to putting up a pair of stuffed reindeer on the roof, there are loads of ways to transform your diesel RV into a Christmas wonderland.

1. Use DIY Decors

There are two benefits of using homemade decor in your RV. First, they help you add a personal touch to your rig. Additionally, they can help you change the look and feel of your coach on a limited budget. When the party is over, it is possible to present these DIY décor things to your RV-er friends.

2.

Your Christmas decoration will never be complete without candles. You can purchase a set of Christmas calendar candles. Start burning them from the first day of December and each day they’ll remind you about the upcoming festival.

Purchasing LED lights is an exceptional idea to decorate your RV. Colorful LEDs cost $10-$20. They operate on extremely low energy. A lighted spiral tree can take your décor to another height. If you are thinking of a boondocking adventure throughout the Christmas, battery-saving LED lights be the perfect décor alternative for you.

3. Use Synthetic Garlands, Wreaths And Bells

Garlands add festive charms to the interior of your motor home. Opt for synthetic items if you cannot come by new garlands while traveling. You can get these bright décor bits at a fair price. Coming with flexible linings, they can fit any door or cabinet irrespective of their sizes.

Another easy way to present your RV doors a lift is using wreaths. Use different sizes of decorative bands for different corners of your coach. You may use towel hangers to suspend these decorative rings from door or window frames. You can use wreaths to decorate the front side of your rolling home, also. But, you’ll need a 3M hook for attaching a wreath there. Do not forget the door handles; give them a makeover with Christmas bells.

4. Spruce up the Décor With Mini- Trees and Tree-Trimmings

Of course, your RV can’t accommodate large Christmas trees, but it does have some space for tree-trimming. You will get plenty of these leftover branches at any hardware shops at little or no cost. Place them in a vase to create a cheerful ambiance. Mini-trees are just another fun items which can help you jazz up the inside of your motor home. Some varieties like mini-rosemary or mini-pine wouldn’t cost you more than $15. To add more charm, hang couple of ornaments from the mini-trees. The metal, wooden or handmade ornaments look great in RVs. Opt for lasting and easy-to-store pieces so that you can use them for a longer time.

5. Add Decals to the Windows

Putting decals on the windows is a simple way to spice up the look and feel of your RV instantly. Add images of Santa Claus or Christmas elves to set the festive mood in your rig. When you store them properly, you can use them over and over for several years.

How To Be A Landlord Without The Headache

Architecture Family House Front Yard Garag

It seems like just about everyone reaches a point in their life when they need to be a landlord. From reality TV shows to glamorous stories of how a few stand-out people went from working fulltime to making thousands and thousands of dollars off their rental properties, there is really no wonder why folks think being a landlord is so lucrative and enjoyable. After all, at first thoughtit seems like owning a whole lot of properties and waiting for the lease checks to come in each month could be so carefree and easy. Not to mention you could make a lot of money by just making a bank-run each month.

Needless to say, in reality, life as a landlord is by no means simple.

Landlords have to manage everything from small hiccups from the pipes to electrical problems, house updates, damage caused by tenants, and much more. In many cases, they also have to give lawn care for their properties, schedule maintenance check-ins, and cover for all kinds of repairs–most of that is likely caused by tenants who were on their way out. Staying on top of due dates and deadlines is still another problem, and when you begin taking a look at the long list of responsibilities a landlord is expected to handle, it becomes apparent that it may not be such an incredible option after all.

But, despite all of the headache, it remains very lucrative. And, if you get in the right tenants, you can save yourself plenty of trouble. However, in spite of these things in mind, landlords still have to be sure the lawn is cared for, the house is preserved, that repairs are fixed in a timely fashion, and that issues tenants bring up are looked after. This means taking a great deal of phone calls, scheduling a lot of handyman visits, and even fronting money for these things out-of-pocket. Normally, the rent checks are enough to keep landlords inspired to keep going since this hard-work surely pays off at the end of the money, but in-between paychecks, it can be difficult to handle everything.

Whether you have one property or many, a home maintenance company can help you make sure everything is taken care of quickly, easily, and with a smile. Instead of you spending countless hours talking to tenants, scheduling repairs, and meeting with the people you employ, a property maintenance company will take over that job and basically deal with all of the headache of being a landlord.

The business will then be responsible for handling all needed repairs and maintenance, and then giving you a summary of what’s going on every week. To put it differently, their job is to ease your stress and assure you that everything is taken care of.

Learn To Better Manage Personal Boundaries

Girls Children Kids Friends Young Happy Ch

When you start to grow and change over time, you will inevitably find certain folks who are a negative influence on you. Not because they are bad people. It’s only an unconscious protection mechanism. If you get’too good’ then they fear that you will look down on them.

The normal type of friendship where this is likely to become a matter for you is when the interaction is parasitic. They get far more out of the friendship than you do. It appears logical to simply’cut them off’ but doing this is not that simple. For starters, most people lack the confidence in their ability to be assertive enough to simply flat-out tell the person that they wish to end the friendship. So they go about it in unhelpful ways. 1 method is to set another person up to position yourself as the New York City Bat Removal. The other thing lots of people do is just stop answering calls or responding to messages and expect the parasite just gets the message and goes off.

Either way however, there will be an underlying feeling of guilt that will make this process difficult. And for good reason. The reality is that you probably played to the parasitic connection at least a bit. So that guilt comes from the fact that you know you’re more responsible than you would feel comfortable acknowledging. If you admit your part then you risk looking like the poor guy that has just used their friendship when it was convenient for you and now that you don’t want them any more, you simply abandon them.

So the first step would be to confront the uncomfortable reality that part of this has some truth to it. But that does not mean you are entirely bad. It just makes you’re human. All of us do this when we crave the approval and link from people with no self-confidence to do so in a way that produces healthy boundaries. So you can leave the parasite behind in the event you wish, but it is still important to learn healthier boundaries for future friendships. It is okay to make mistakes but repeating them isn’t useful.

The other uncomfortable reality you will have to face in order to grow from the experience is to accept that their parasitic interactions with you is just part of the reason you wish to cut them off. The other is that there’s a very real probability that they remind one of the parts you do not like about yourself. So it’s important to admit that your choice to cut them off is not to punish them but to help you grow. The lesson you will want to learn however is that if you do not work on growing your own self-esteem, you will just wind up repeating the same cycle along with different friends.

If you’re feeling too guilty about cutting them off completely, there is another way. And that’s to change how you interact with them.

However, you start to realise that some of their off-handed remarks are in fact subtle put downs to keep you down. It is probably going to feel awkward as hell, but there is no real reason to stop you from saying words to the effect of:

“Look I appreciate your concern, but if you say things like that it feels like a subtle sort of put down. I’m confident you don’t mean it but I will have to insist that you respect my wishes to not speak like this any more. I don’t want to lose your friendship but I need to let you know that I’m only going to keep on speaking with you if you respect that.”

That sounds easy but here’s the hardest part.

There’s a good likelihood that they have held the upper hand by being the more dominant participant in the relationship. So standing up to them like this is going to necessarily create tension, and they’re not going to like that. The reality is however that good relationships including good friendships, will defy this tension. That’s how you create boundaries.

It is however important to be ready for the inevitable retaliation from them however, which is likely to be”but you’re not saint yourself.”

And there is an excellent chance this is true. The significant hurdle stopping someone from insisting on a more respectful interaction with a friend is how they know they are guilty of similar interactions. Because if you are going to stand your ground with this new border then you have to accept it when they respond by pointing out your own interpersonal flaws. So to remain consistent, you have to step up and accept that if there criticisms of you’re true, then you might have to change your interactions with them as well. In other words, you have to give them no excuses by modifying your own behaviors as well. And that’s the toughest part.

If you do this however – you acknowledge your flaws to them. You work on changing your own behavior in return for expecting an improvement in their own.

It won’t probably happen easily mind you. They will inevitably complain to your friends and try to turn them against you by telling you that you believe you are’too good for them now’. Anticipate this and hope that you may inevitably have to lose both them and other friends in the process.

This is another hard part. You’re going to feel like your behavior is under scrutiny and be judged for being unjust if you hold others to standards you aren’t ready to live up to. They may also attack you for your inconsistency if you allow it or even invite it on some occasions when it’s convenient for you but disallow it if it does not suit you. They won’t take your boundary seriously and you’ll inevitably wind up looking like the bad guy.

Butif you measure up. If you are open and honest about it. If you’re consistent. If you learn how to exercise mutual respect. And most importantly, if you acknowledge your flaws rather than attempt to prop yourself over the other individual as being superior to them. If you do these things then there is a very real possibility which you may actually lead the relationship in a healthier way.

This will be difficult at first and will feel like two people floundering around in the water trying to rescue themselves without being tempted to grab onto the other person to keep them afloat without pushing their head under in precisely the same time. If you manage to do this however, then this is by far the best outcome by far.

As soon as you learn how to master this process however, you will not just have made leaps and bounds on your social skills but you’ll also have learned to step up and develop your own limiting immaturity as well. So it’s a win-win.

If this sounds like a goal you want to accomplish in your own interpersonal relationships, then just remember this.

And the quality of communication you have with other folks will be most heavily affected by the standard of intrapersonal communication you have with yourself.

The Best NHL GM

Hockey Sport Athlete Player Puck Stick Pla

Let’s Start with complete NHL points accumulated via the draft. To perform this analysis, I summed the accumulated NHL points of all drafted players (excluding goalies) by GM. Naturally you’d think the longest tenured GM would collect the most NHL points (drafting the most players thereby raises the odds of amassing Tamarac Wildlife Removal).

After Garth, we have Bryan Murray in 2nd with 8 decades and 2010 points. After Bryan, it becomes interesting with Greg Sherman coming in third with only 6 years as GM and 1563 points.

Why did Greg Sherman do this well? Well, finishing last or near it helps. He had the #1, #2, and # 3 picks in 2009, 2011, and 2013 respectively. Due to the amount of top draft picks, I am not inclined to name him the best in this category.

My pick actually goes to #2 – Bryan Murray. Why? Outstanding mid-round picking will take action. 1 prime example – he selected Erik Karlsson at #15 in 2008. Sorry Leaf fans but you could have had Erik Karlsson rather than Luke Schenn.

From an overall performance perspective. Bryan averaged 251 NHL points per draft season. Well ahead of anyone else. Amazing.

In this respect, Joe Nieuwendyk is so much in front it’s silly. Joe has a 56% success rate. Granted, his first-round selections have been busts… but he’s done remarkably well in later rounds.

Picking Wayne Simmonds at 61 was genius. Darcy Regier is next at 32.6percent – picking Brian Campbell with the 156th pick was pretty wonderful.

In fourth place, we’ve got Bryan Murray in 31%. Given that Bryan accumulated significant NHL points over his career (as mentioned in the first part of the article), maybe it’s no surprise he is also high on the list when it comes to success rate. Interesting enough, he is the only GM to crack the top 4 in both lists.

To summarize the first part of this series – Who’s the best drafting GM over the past ten years? I pick Bryan Murray. He found a lot of good talent and found it without the luxury of high picks. Unfortunately, he passed away this past year and the NHL may have lost the best drafting GM of all time. Stay tuned to find out if he can stand the test of time.
