Gainey did not bring us the cup nor did he bring us anywhere near one (Halak superman run aside) this woud have wiped away the Gomez mess, and all the other crap. He was not a terrible GM and not a great one either. Savard, the new "advisor" was no gem either, but he was at the helm for 2 cups and that is the difference between he and Gainey.(look at what Savard got us for the best goalie in hockey) The salary cap and how it's managed is a big obstacle for any GM in todays era, Julien Brisebois might be the guy based on his expertise. Whomever the guy is, he inherits a less than stellar crop of prospects (Bealieau, Tinordi aside) and has to find us at least 2 forwards and 2 new d as soon as he is hired.(draft will get us one) Gainey had his shot, now he's gone, lets move on and hope the new people coming in will have better success and we will get back to where we should be.
