I've had the same opinion of Gainey for awhile now, average GM, good in some areas disapointing in others, but clearly nowhere near as effective as his reputation.
what happens between now and august will go along way to making his true effectivness plain and clear to everyone.
This is the first year out of 6 where he actually assembled a team that was worthy of considerable playoff expectations (a damning point in itself, imo), if the team falls apart and stumbles o another early playoff exit, or worse, doesn't even make the big dance, he'll be deserving of a big fat
on his tenure thus far(no, 1 conference point leader finish does not = successful GM tenure, imo).... his only saving grace from there would be a summer spent revamping the roster and someone showing a much better ability at managing assets and signing UFA'S, so as to give the habs a roster, come august, that has at least the appearance of being able to improve on the mediocracy of the past decade
