people only like to look at the negative crap.

Like evry other GM gainey won some and lost some.
So true.

Gainey took a gamble. If Gomez ended up producing 60-70 points every year this trade would have been good for us. Sadly it didn't turn out that way.

Some people say Gainey&Gauthier are ''spineless'' or ''sleeping at the wheel''. The Gomez move was the opposite. Risky moves are... well risky, and when they don't work out well they look very bad (or make the GM look very good. Kovalev trade is a good example. Balej was one of our top prospects and Kovalev was a struggling overpaid Rangers player. does that remind anyone of someone?).
