He then proceeds to give three NTC's out, one of which was to Babchuk, a 7th defensmen/PP specialist.
In those same press conferences, he would go on to say how important draft picks were. After already throwing away a 7th on an obviously finished Modin, throws away 5th for Leblond, a player who could have been picked up on waivers a couple of months later.
After trading that 7th for Modin, he would go on to say that he fully plans on getting it pack and that he wanted a pick in every round (2011 draft). Fails on both accounts.
After the stretch run in 2011 failed, he would emphatically state he wouldn't be fooled again. Whoops.
A week before the 2012 deadline, says major changes will be coming. At the deadline, does nothing. Although, granted, ownership may have had a some influence in the the last two points.
you seem to take failing as lying. just because something wasn't achieved doesn't mean he never tried to do it.
While I agree the Babchuk NTC was ill advised, you can't blame him for the Glencross and Tanguay NTCs since they signed pretty cheap contracts.
