One thing I noticed about Gainey was he was not the same person after his daughter was killed. He had a certain edge to me, bitterness almost after Laura was lost. Not in a night and day type change but more of a subtle one.

Gainey made moves and did some things the last few years as GM he would not have done before. Ripping Carbo, his best bud the way he did. Fire Dougie Jarvis...I mean come on...Doug Jarvis been with Gainey since his North Stars days. He knew what he had with Jarvis. Put his star player Kovalev off the team. Calling out the Tampa GM. It was one thing after another. Dumping Huet for a 2nd round pick on the eve of the playoffs and go with with 2 rookie unproven goalies. He let Souray and Streit both walk with little effort to resign.

Gainey was just a different person after Dec, 2006.
