If this is the case, that should be your first clue that things were going wrong.
Some people loved the Gomez trade.
Some people loved the Kostistyn trade, arguing that trading for 2 free agents just hours before they were to become UFA's was a swell deal.

Bottom line, there isn't consensus or at times even a lot of common sense on a message board.

But even if there is, people here are not paid millions of dollars in salary to make the right decisions the first time. Gauthier is.

If I was being paid millions of dollars and repeatedly made bad business deals to the benefit of my competitors I'd be fired, especially if I told higher levels of the organization "oh well, hindsight is 20/20".

People have to begin admitting that while nobody is perfect, you don't pay a hockey executive millions in salary to make glaring errors. Time to punt Gauthier.
