especially given the fact that White contributed to our team as much as Phaneuf did, and at a fraction of the price
And then, you say that Sutter is the worst GM in history. Why is that? The only really terrible trade he did was the Jokinen / Prust / Higgins / Kotalik trade, and possibly the Sauve / Reinprecht / Boucher / Leclerc trade (which wasn't even a major trade anyways).
He's also the guy that acquired one of the best goalies in the league for a pick, he acquired Rene Bourque for a pick, he acquired the rights to Bouwmeester for next to nothing, he got Huselius for nothing, he robbed Phoenix of Langkow, he signed an undrafted Mark Giordano, hhe brought in Warrener/Nilson/Simon/Donovan etc. for depth which carried us to the '04 Finals, he routinely gets guys to sign discounted contracts, and many players have come in and put up career numbers under his regime. Oh, and he drafted your beloved Phaneuf.
There's worse GM's out there than Sutter, that's for sure. All you're doing is seeing one or two bad trades (which is striclty your opinion) and basing your opinion of him solely off of that. Fail.
And that's over.
