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...
I understand your point of view and frustration, but it's really not that simple. You can't have a dream team in a cap world. This is the first real off season in quite some time where we have ample cap space to spend. There was really only one winger worth that cap space and we missed out.
