I don't buy the "our deadline pickups are guys who were already on our team" line of bulls***.

To expect two guys coming off of long term injury (one career threatening and one looking like a shell of his former self) to have a large impact was a folley. Luckily Pothier was pretty solid, but it was a huge gamble.

Honestly, it was lip service from a GM who tied his own hands to the extent that he couldn't make a move even if he wanted to.

I said it in October that this team wasn't built to go deep in the playoffs. Anyways, long offseason to see what he does. I think he's at least earned another year thanks to Ovechkin.
