And I'm sorry, but Feds was absolutely a respectable forward. He was our 4th leading scorer in the Cup run. He is a good player. He's not a great player by any means and he's taken a step back since 2009 but he was a good pick-up for us the first time around and a very easily explained re-sign the second time around with his playoff performance considered.
I dont know if I was clear, but I meant he hasnt brought in many high impact free agents. Shero has a VERY impressive trading ability, cannot deny that. But his free agent signings, particularly forwards, almost never have a big impact on the team. I just feel they have all been big disappointments. That's all. He hasnt been able to find a real difference maker, just a buch of guys to fill the gap for a year. But the problem is we dont have a bunch of prospects who are the verge of becoming a top 6 winger, so the stop gap fillers get old after 4 years. That's all...
