Disagree partially. The Wild GM seemed to make a good move with Parise and Suter.

Right now it seems good, but look at the situation with other players with big contracts. They are impossible to get rid of. So while the the additions of Parise and Suter are good now, in the future they may be handcuffed.
Tambo gets a bad rap, but his contracts have been decent the past years.
-Hemsky got a some good money but only 2 years
-Hall and Ebs contracts will be a bargain in 2 years
Tambo has the team positioned to be financially solid in the upcoming years.
Also, in the rebuilding years he didnot get impatient and trade picks away. Most of his 1,2,3 rounders are coming along well (d prospects mainly) He also made good trades that made sense for a rebuilding team.
He traded Penner for Klefbom (a top d prospect), Tuebert (decent young d prospect who plays physical) and Zharkov (decent forward prospect)
He also added N Schultz for defensive support.
He went extremely hard for J.Schultz and was sucessful
Tambo may not have been very proactive in the rebuilding phase but he made good trades, didnt strap the team down with huge contracts, and keep and developed picks and prospects.
Not a top tier GM, but not a bad one either
