I don't exactly have a high opinion of his GMing capability right now.

EDIT: I should add that it was a terrible market for goalies last year. Colorado, us, and EDM were the only teams that really needed one, Colorado went for Anderson, we went for Emery, EDM went for Khabibulin.

A smart GM would have realized the way the market looked and waited for Biron to back down.

Or signed Anderson and re-sign Knuble.
