He has continually failed to deliver and only added a (borderline) top-6 forward in Stumpel AFTER he traded away 1 of other our top-6 forwards.

Debate sematics all you want but Stumpel is still just a replacement for Smolinski. We needed a top-6 forward before we traded Smoke. We needed 2 afterwards. We got 1. Whether DT said he was going to get 2 or not is irrelevant. It has been a need regardless.

As for defense, he said he was looking for a defenseman "with some bite", not a "banging" defenseman
*sigh* Want to tell me the difference?

I have never worried about dmen since AM's first year. It's the one area he has excelled at.
He had the personal. This year he doesn't.

This year, though, the forward situation looks way better than ever, even with the injuries.
Huh?

Frolov - Stumpel - Palffy
Robitaille - Armstrong - Klatt

This is "WAY BETTER THAN EVER"?

When healthy, we have a very good forward core.

Unhealthy (as is the case), we are pretty average. (if that)
