I wasn't terribly upset at the trade when it happened because it's not my money and I didn't see Spacek as having any value moving forward. But he's been terrible. He's a wonderful passer and a terrible defenceman, shows no effort and simply isn't competing hard, pretty much ever. It looks like he's just going through the motions, a shell of a player he was. He's disinterested. He's a bad role model and an issue for the team moving foward. To think a team in a death spiral would add long-term character problems like Kaberle and Borque is just mind boggling. Gauthier screwed the pooch bigtime. Best I can hope for now is the team just buries him. More likely he'll linger like a piece of tp stuck to the team's behind.
As for Spacek, his departure helped the tank. So there's that.
