He has tried to get UFAs but it's obvious that no UFA worth a lick will ever come to Montreal - so we have to completely rely upon drafting players and then use them or trade them for players. He has made a few impact trades, but it just seems that he didn't pull the trigger when he needed to. He was TOO patient.

We have been competitive but we're still not serious about contending for a cup.

Problem being, if had kept him and then he bolted , people would be screaming that we got nothing for him (a la Streit, Souray)

Cant win no matter what he does
