My only problem with GMGM is that he seems to overspend to extend players. He overspent for Fedorov, Laich, Clymer, arguably Erskine and yes, he overspent for St. Ovechkin. Not that those players haven't lived up to their respective contracts, I just think they could have been had for cheaper. If he gets roped into overspending to keep Backstrom and Semin, he could cripple the team's future.

That's my only concern. The team's drafting record is trending upward, he has only made one bad FA signing recently, and his deadline moves in 07-08 were unarguably brilliant. Really, what more do you want from a GM?

Oh, and the team is suddenly CRUSHING the business side of things. I don't know how involved GMGM is with things like ticket sales and advertising, but the organization is doing everything right at the moment. They are the talk of the town.
