Homer is one of the best GMs in the NHL in my opinion........Great goalies, great defense, great speed, strong in the corners, and a nice mix of youth and veterans, whats really not to like ? Sure Homer has his moments and he makes a few cap snafus now and then, but you just gotta love how our club competes and is always clawing its way toward the goal of winning another cup.
The whole NHL cap thing is really a tough thing to manage year in and year out, and it will NEVER allow a team to become 100% 'COMFORTABLE" with the club it builds each year, because its designed that way to some extent...Players Age, get injured, lose confidence, get divorced, etc, which may suddenly make a 3 or 4 year contract suddenly look bad or stupid ?
Homers moves this off season were very corageous, and it took a lot of grit to pull the trigger, but he did and i really admire that kind of leadership......Great job Homer , now learn how to ride a bicycle ! lol
