Gainey failed us in his summer of madness. Yet, countless defenders came to the rescue : "If we hadn't bent over to acquire the overpaid piece of crap that is Gomez we wouldn't have Gionta and Cammy" could be read fairly often on these boards. Well, Cammy turned out to be a prima donna that we had to trade away and Gionta is a silent leader who doesn't really have the on ice impact to be a silent captain and he also happens to be overpaid quite a bit. And that's the man we decided to replace Koivu with. Sad. Let's not even talk about the horrible gifts of Ribeiro, Latendresse and the failure to recognize a good thing in Streit.
But probably the worst move Gainey made... appoint vegan skeletorô as his successor.
I'll always respect the man. I'll always respect the player. This thread isn't made to crap on the GM either. This is merely payback for all the "Gainey
" ridiculous sarcastic posts and to wake some people up.
Can we finally come to conclusion that Gainey failed us as a GM ? Failed us big time ? Can we get a mea culpa from the management apologists ?
With gainey's rebuilt team we made the semis one season and finished 6th in the east the next and came 1 goal from eliminating the eventual champs. I do not see why this is discredited by 1 poor seaspon 2 years after Gainey left. It's gauthier's team now.
