I was quite clear that I had no idea how things would unfold. Some decisions were good, others I had my doubts on. I also was aware that you keep adapting as seasons go by, and I assumed we were going to make the proper adjustments as the years went by. Well, I was definitely wrong about that.
But, to be fair, I don't think we ever truly got to see the potential of this assembled group. We missed our best player for the most part, and had numerous injuries over the years.
The mistake I made was trust management more than I should have. But Gainey left, and Gauthier took over. He had his hands tied up so I felt I should give him a pass as he would get a lot more free space the following year. The decisions he opted to take last summer as well as some of the trades made this year are simply inexcusable.
