I do understand Sting's point although I love Jags and respect everything he did to make this franchise relevant again. We were supposed to be a rebuilding team that year after the lockout and finish dead last. Probably would have been like that for another year or two but instead we surprised everybody. And the 05-06 team and 06-07 team had everyone thinking we were Cup contenders from the fans up to the management and they moved away from the rebuilding process and went out and signed Gomez and Drury. If we had a better GM, we wouldn't have been in as bad of a spot but instead, he completely scrapped the rebuilding idea until he had no more cap space to work with. Now he's pretty much forced to develop and hang on to the kids.
