Are you Stephane Dionne now? Give me a break man. These guys are GMs, I can understand it the first time. I can understand it the second time. But to not be prepared for it this year is inexcusable. Not unless you are actually rebuilding. Instead, we made stupid trades on our way down in the standings. So it was doubly stupid.
If Price misses 150 out of his next 200 games then yeah, I'd say you better have a backup plan. How is it that you still don't understand this?
This little problem didn't just spring up on these guys man... He was coming off major surgery and had missed a ton of games over the past few years. YES we should've anticipated this. Only an idiot (like Gauthier) couldn't see it coming.
See how right now I'm saying we should plan for his absence NEXT year? I said this LAST year about this season too. So did many people on this board. Don't pretend like this was some fluke out of nowhere. What are you going to say if/when the same thing happens next year? "Geez how could we have known this?" Give me a break man...
Again, I didn't write him off. I said that he hasn't looked good. I also said that we should plan for the worst. The fact that he's only played 5 games so far this year just reinforces my point.
I guess when a doctor tells you something you say "**** what do you know about healing and the body?. I am gonna go ask my buddies on hfboard because in hindsight they are always right"
Markov was expected back early, you just can't seem to get it through your mind that gauthier wasn't sitting there thinking "geez how can I **** this team? Oh thats right I will sign markov long term knowing full well he wont play this year" Use some common sense for crying out loud. YOu think they are going to run out and make a huge trade against the advice of medical professionals? Give me your magic ball miss Cleo.
As reguards to your first point yes the coaching is a much bigger factor than markov. I see you trying to pin everything on his signing in a vain/sad attempt to blame gauthier.
I am sure managment will monitor his progress in these games and over the offseason, 5 games is not enough to determine sweet **** all let alone the mans career a year from now.
