Then people will say "Oh he's supposed to be looking he's a GM!" as if its so easy to get a decent player in trade if you are any NHL GM let alone one with a "crazy owner" a building that is falling apart and a losing record for 5 years. But yet its so easy
Agreed....I don't blame Snow for not landing a UFA. I'm actually pleasently surprised at his ability to run the team and make shrewd moves, it is frustrating not to be able to land UFA's...I hate that we HAVE to give up value to get value when every other team can just sign talent.
Bottom line, nobody is crying for us....Snow has to deal with what the situation is and I think he's done a pretty good job.
