And I used such a gross exagerration... where exactly? I said that the net result of all the moves I've seen him make suggest lack of vision/perspective, and ability to evaluate talent moving forward beyond what current "popular opinion" on a player is. In fact, one could argue that he failed at every one of the major judgment calls he has been a part of (from the Koivu/Cammy/Gio/Gomer changing of the guard, to signing Markov instead of Wizniewski, to letting multiple promising coaches leave the organization just to hire another even less established rookie coach, players who were let go versus those brought in/signed, etc, etc), and so perhaps his "filler moves" (2nd for a rental here, prospect for a prospect there) aren't enough to sway confidence back in his favour over all.

We all know that they were intrinsically linked through the time frame laid out in the post you replied to, so again... no playing dumb please.
