Homer has done a good job. The good moves definitly outweigh the bad and in this league that's a good thing. Whether you like him or not, this team had progressed and all the cap stuff really hasn't hurt them like most people said it would 2-3 years ago. Look at the Hawks, they had to gut that team, this team has used minor tweaks. It also cracks me up to see people blame homer for moves that didn't work out but give him no credit for signing big name players. If signing big name players that are successful is so easy then why did nobody else do it? He could have easily signed redden but he didn't. He could have signed Gomez or drury instead of Briere but he didn't. He could have picked up bouwmeister who was ridiculously overrated but he got pronger instead. Just because they worked out doesn't make them no brainers that he shouldn't get credit for. He's got the core of the team locked up long term to what wi be very low cap hits in 5 years or so. He's done a good job and deserves this contract.
