At what point does PG get any blame at all from his defenders? Never, it seems even our lottery position is a brilliant plan he has designed.
Campoli - absolutely atrocious as a cover signing. Or as a signing period.
Kaberle - atrocious panic move for the team we have, we needed a defensive player, or a big PP point shot maybe, not another soft zero-d no-shot player at the time. He is much less mobile than imagined. No leadership, no fire or fight, bad contract.
Weber & Diaz - seriously you can't go into a season with both these guys penciled in. You just can't, they are pretty bad defensively. Combined with Kaberle and Campoli, that is a nuclear back-end assembly. Yes Markov isn't anyone's fault; but you can trade or make better moves.
That's just the D; to say little of personnel management, trading, forwards...
PG is not blameless in assembling one of the 3 worst teams in the league, the roster is thin and littered with 4th liners. Some of it is due to injury but not all. Plus even though JM needed to go, it had to be done with more consideration about a successor; and had to be done without looking down the bench to the next guy - RC, the one responsible for the leagues worst pp - and promoting him. His ability to identify the wrongs on the team and his attempts to right them are the absolute opposite of what we should do.
He's made some good moves, a couple of excellent ones; but our position reflects on his abilities more than anyone's. He has to be sent packing with RC and co.
