Not showcasing Kostitsyn when you know were going to trade him was Gauthier's mistake at the deadline...but he didn't just fail to show case him, he got cunneyworth to suck all the value he ever had by playing him with blowmez, 10 minutes a night, with no pp time and then berating him to the media. Getting a 2nd round pick is expected when you do that to ANY player. Just terrible asset management, mind boggling really.
Our prospect pool is bare for the simple fact that we trade picks for band-aids, fail to keep the band-aids, get nothing in return for the band-aids, trade away our good young players way below market value if they show any kind of attitude, letting ufa's walk away for nothing so you can maybe get into the 2nd round of the playoffs...its just not how you build a successful team.
So many failures in the Gainey era has caused the mess that we are in. There is a light at the end of the tunnel however, it has to do with the fact that we make a lot of money, carey price, subban, pacioretty and this lottery pick we are getting. But for that light to shine down on us our management needs to go as does our inept coaching staff.
