This ****ing city man. The ****ing people in this city man. Unbelievable.
i don't think the issue is so much that the Habs let Pyatt/Pouliot go for nothing...
the issue is more so that they were replaced with arguably lesser players (one of which, Noke, we had to trade assets -however small- to obtain).
no where near as troublesome as the "big" blunders, such as trading for Kaberle, but yet another example that this management team does a piss-poor job at evaluating & managing the assets it has.
Pyatt & Pouliot are better assets to have on the NHL roster than Noke & Engqvist/Palushaj... cap hit about the same... So how do you reason that Gauthier did well by dropping the more talented/established players, while giving up a 7th rd pick & AHL prospect in the process?
bad asset management.
