The thing is, the GM has to anticipate the potential issues. Like having 6 of your top 8 forwards be more comfortable at center, like guys with the injury histories of Briere and Gagne getting hurt, like not having a sure thing in goal...

I was as guilty as anyone of overrating this team. The thing is, it's not my job to build a Stanley Cup winner. If it was, and this was the results I had assembled, I'd expect to be fired.
