people seem to have short memories...
previous management tried to add skill by overpaying (either in trade/UFA signings) for guys like 2nd tier(or worse) offensive guys Tanguay, Lang, Gomez, Cammalleri, Gionta... and how did that work out?
this management team decides to focus on improving another much lacking area in our organization, and does so without giving up any assets, adding 3 character guys known for being respected in the locker room & tough to play against in their specific roles, and doing so for less than what any of those failed attempts at adding skill cost us...
and now their complaining (despite defending ad nauseum those previous failures)?
It's called having a plan, and the patience to make it happen step by step, with relatively low risk decisions that won't hurt the team if they fail... then once you've built up the right infrastructure, the right culture, THEN you go make the big splash "home run" type move, so that even if it does fail, you don't wind up with a basement dwelling team.
i guess some people just don't like reasoned and rational approaches to building
