You're praising Gauthier for what, ridding us of cammalleri? Sure, I like the trade, but did you think cammalleri had no value and PG pulled out a miracle for a playoff beast?

The irony of your logic, is not that Gainey is without flaw. He made a few blunders, gomez being a huge one. The irony is that a guy who doesn't have a perfect record either is without flaw for you.

I'll gladly accept gauthier hasn't done too bad. I was strongly against him but the fact he's selling makes me happy and the gill return was excellent. However, what's the deal? Gainey had better steals in his time, better drafts and better direction, he also had a bigger blunder in gomez. Now, PG hasn't done much good, nor much bad. He got a good return for gill, but got kaberle as well in same year. So, how can you say Gainey is terrible, but gauthier has done a good job? If Gauthier did a good job, so did gainey. If Gauthier did a bad job, gainey did as well. They're records are not very different. If anything, history shows Gainey has the better one as a player, coach and GM.
1) We aren't far enough in to see the results of Gauthiers drafting
2) Gaineys mistakes were catastrophic and still effecting us today, Gauthiers have been "getting a 40point dman!!!"
3) Gauthier in his short time has had better moves. Cole, DD, Emelin, Price.
4) Gauthier has much better direction, letting star players leave for nothing and then rushing out and grabbing a bunch of ex devils in the hopes overpaying them pays off was downright retarded. Took Gainey abandoning ship like a coward for us to finally get big tough players, thank you gauthier.
5) Who cares about his record as a player, stay on topic.
6) Comparing these two is hilarious, gainey made moves that sit him down beside milbury, Gauthier has done nothing like that. Hell if Kaberle maintains his point pace from this year to next we could feasibly move him for a 1st round pick and I bet a lot of you would be mysteriously missing.
