Bringing in Samsonov in July, absolutely horrible fit from the moment it happened. Trading Ribeiro for scraps in September 06... just mind boggling. Was Pierre Gauthier and his merry band of pro scouts at work there too? Probably, but Gainey pulled the trigger.
The Samsonov signing was a minor mistake, the type that many, perhaps all, GMs make from time to time.
