i am not sure what your definition of proactive might be. the caps have actively gone ou and acquired players to fill needs. ribeiro would be an example of that. knuble and poti and brouwer on off season's past.
is your issue that he hasnt made a big, breakdown the roster core trade or a big future for today trade like the opportunity to get pronger?
My issue is that this team isnt getting better. GMGM is the architect.
This team seems to be swinging downwards in my eyes. Peaked a few years ago, and now our "stars" are playing worse/hurt (Ovechkin, Backstrom, Green) or are gone (Semin). GMGM's grand plan of the Young Guns didnt work.
Yes HE is still here.
I would be happy with a new direction from this franchise. I *fully* understand that a new direction may mean worse results, so be careful what I wish for....right? However, this current direction simply will not = Stanley Cup. It just wont. George has had 15 swipes at the brass ring, and I think his insulation from Job Harm (read = getting fired) will always promote this "playoffs is good enough" mentality from him and this team.
I have seen 30 years of "playoffs is good enough" (1982 til 2012). And I am frankly tired of it.
Many should be as well, but it seems you are not, Tex?
