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.
What is there to buy? Saying they're our deadline additions was never about them being the best additions we could make, it was always about them being the only additions we could make. That was never in question once it was clear Nylander wasn't going anywhere.
