I blame this over-reaction from the fans on video games and the mentality that it brings. In NHL 2010 you can sign anyone you want, reality is that this is not video games. You can offer a (significantly?) better contract and still get rejected. Unlike in video games you cant trade your crap for their gold.
Snow made an effort to sign good players (Martin, Hamuis) it didn't work out but its not the end of the world. I just hope he doesn't panic (like most of us here) and ends up signing garbage and/or FAs at insane contracts. Or panicking through trades. I mean we had the same exact situation with Peca and Yashin in 01. Sure we were awesome for that year but then we got a bit unlucky and had pretty much nothing to fall back on. Had Milbury been patient we probably would not be in this situation today and maybe Milbury still has a job.
