Well so far I'm giving the Sherminator and Billington an A+++. They've got a fantastic coaching staff in place and have continued to build from within. I criticized their failure to address the lack of a powerful shot apart from Mueller, but it looks like the answer lies within on that front as well. He also made a masterful under-the-radar move in getting Daniel Winnik.

So far, Sherman has not yet made the big move, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

On a side note, while I did not like Francois Giguere as a GM (I truly felt he botched negotiations with both Theodore and Brunette, even if those moves paid off in hindsight) it's obvious he did a good job in drafting. Or am I giving him too much credit--how much control does Rick Pracey have when it comes to the draft? It seems like he has a lot more control than you'd expect a scouing director to have, at least to me. Not that I'm complaining mind you, he's managed to fill the "cubbard" in a relatively short amount of time.

Oh, I see he has a Twitter feed...hasn't posted on it though. Bummer.
