I think the article is tendentious. Lacroix had a lot of swings and misses too. The Roy trade, while it was extremely fortunate for Avs, isn't indicative of his reign. There were plenty of trades where we gave up more than we should, but since we had a wealth of riches people didn't care until after Lacroix was gone.

Secondly, pretty much all of the Sherman trades are trades that won't be able to be evaluated for years. They involve very young players and draft picks. Jumping on Varlamov now is a gimmie. I'm sure the tune will change when Varlamovs play does.

That the organization could use new blood from the outside in the front office and among the coaches I agree with. The only tie to the championship era that's worth hanging on to is Sakic.
