The sad thing was that until the Gomez trade his record was excellent -- he had iced a fine, exciting team, one that could play with anyone and was only a bit of luck and one more forward from a Stanley Cup. Then , on the rebound from the failure to land Lecavalier? Or something, he made a trade that was not just disastrous on the merits of what we were getting , but inexplicable in terms of what we gave up: Sather wanted to shed salary to get Gaborik; there was no need to throw in anything, much less a top D prospect. No one else would have taken Scott G. Gainey must have thought that Gomez's playoff experience and "leadership" with the Devils would bring heart and "grit" to the Koivu/Kovalev version, which did everything well til playoff time. Oh, well. Nobody's perfect. But until that trade he was doing just fine.
