As for his trades, yes more recently he has not done bad. Let's also not forget the how many assets were used up in trades for Lindros, Bure, Carter, Jagr. This is NOT all that long ago. Compile his meh record of drafting in teh 1st round and what do you get?

Look, I am as happy as anyone with the way the team is and the organization is. But let us not forget that during his rather long tenure now, the Rangers STILL have not developed a top-line forward and have only made it out of the second round twice. Oh, and have had quite an assortment of hidden millionaires in Hartford.
