From bottom dweller with no future to a team that looks like it will be contending for 5-6 years. Without tanking. While playing with the cap better than most GMs (only being equalled by Ken Holland), not falling into the huge contract trap most other GM end up into, so he has a possible 1st seed team with 6 millions to spare.
I cannot give him anything less than A+. Over 95%.
I see, as mistakes, only 2. Niinimaa, and Samsonov. But Niinimaa was a fantastic player when Gainey was in Dallas (he was in Edm), and Samsonov was supposed to bolster our offense greatly.
Both were epic fail, but when Gainey fails, he always gives himself a way out. Both didn't hurt our team much. And it seems that without Ribeiro, we have better chemistry in the room.
He did what was required of him. Whether or not the team wins the cup is in Carbo and the player's hands.
