an inexcusable mistake by a GM... if the team's hockey operations were run nearly as "business-like" as their marketing, Gainey would have been fired before he stepped aside, and no way the director of pro scouting overseeing that blunder would have been promoted to replace him...

it was the cherry on top of a pretty bad management tenure that was largely sheltered thanks to some quality assets that were already in place, many of which were needlessly squandered.

we can only hope that this year is the last season we'll have to deal with Gomez on the roster, hopefully the emergence of Eller/DD this year, and his diminishing salary vs cap hit starting next year will be enough to get PG to ship him out of town...

who knows, maybe we get lucky and find someone as "smart" as Gainey was, and actually land some half decent asset in return.
