With this in mind, Gainey is damn close to after his abysmal mishandling of assets. We are still enduring the disaster he left behind. What is astonishing is how the team managed a miracle run to the ECF.
+ A Conference Championship with carbonneau behind the bench...

These two events have distorted badly the real value of this team.
