I was going to add in another list with some of his better moves (Forseberg trade, Coburn trade, Umberger trade). But even in these trades, we screw up teh assets.
We get a 1st for Umberger, draft Sbisa, then trade him in the Pronger deal, along with 2 1st round picks (and Lupul).
We get Upshall and a 1st in the Forseberg deal. We then give the 1st right back to Nashville for the rights to 2 upcoming UFA's, then package Upshall with a draft pick for Carcillo, for salary cap issues. Even Parent, the lasting peive from teh deal, has battled injuries ever since being here.
The Coburn deal is his pride and joy.
