Judging by PG's past moves he will not make such a folly, he tends to get reasonable value for players and makes moves when they are nessessary. If you want to show me some documented proof saying PG was in favor of the gomez trade then we can continue but if not please stop making up garbage.
Yeah, you've made that opinion clear don't worry. Just like you're making your opinion clear about Gauthier.
How are Gauthier's moves in his first 2+ years any better than Gainey's moves in his first 2+ years? How did such an amazing GM turn a team that went to the conference finals into a lottery team with a weak prospect pool in a little over 2 years? Well I guess at least he acquired a couple 2nd rounders to make up for the ones he traded away. We got a taller too. Kaberle and Bourque haven't played well but they were good in the past so they can only be good in the future (unlike Gomez). Got rid of 3rd liners like SK who only lead a crappy Preds team in scoring that made the 2nd round last season.
I'm not sure why it's so hard for you to believe that during Gainey's 7 year tenure as GM he had significant input from from the Assistant GM he hired, Director of Professional Scouting he hired, and Director of amateur scouting he promoted when making trades, signing players, and drafting.
