right now we have carter/richards for the price of one of pitt's top two centers. we also have the best dman in the business at a reasonable cap hit (though i admit the extension could be an exploding dye pack, big time). next to no one from a conference champion team is a question mark to return next season.

the deals with briere, timonen and hartnell were all a bang-bang-bang thing and at least two of the three will be fine. i was pretty critical of the briere deal and it's not a big winner but it's not a total loser either. timonen was a fine signing and hartnell was OK, probably be a non-issue as i don't see him playing out the deal.

the drafts, yes he has given away a lot of picks but we'll see what happens with the guys he has selected. already ericsson looks like a steal, for example. i'd be open to criticism there but not overly firm critiques since a lot of things are still up in the air.
