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.
Pyatt and Pouliot were both RFAs. You think Gauthier never offered them to other teams before letting them go for free?

Nobody wanted to trade for them. Deal with it.
