Every GM makes mistakes, and that's why I've been tolerant of DL for so long. That said, the Cammalleri, Penner, Visnovksy and Richards trades were all blunders IMO.
I think we would've lost Cammalleri either way. You saw that even the Flames were unwilling to pony up after trading good assets to get him. It's also way way way way way too soon to tell re: Richards. He's having a bad stretch but he was settling in well before the concussion.

I think DL's biggest mistake was letting Zeus walk. He brought a lot to this team's bottom six which we've yet to replace.
