Also, I _highly_ doubt either of you or me know more than Harry Sinden or George McPhee, so let's not label National Hockey League General Managers as "idiots."

Don't you think it's a testament whatsoever to Pierre Lacroix that he comes out on top in all these deals?

Or is that just more 'dumb luck?

Lou Lamolillo isn't an idiot, that's why. It doesn't take a 'superior telent evaluator' to be able to BS other gm's.



By the way...how's that Theo Fleury trade working out for the Avs, because the Flames aren't doing too bad, Robyn Regehr is only a franchise defenseman now
