What do you hope the roster looks like in 2 years?

If you're hung up on the years put in rather than what was put in the years, Craig Patrick negates any "lack of experience" in the front office.
That said, guys, let's not make this personal and fight amongst ourselves.
Fair enough. Here's the list of unrestricted free agents that the Blues signed during the Davidson tenure. I've skipped 2006 because he was hired on June 30 and free agency began the next day, minimizing the chance that there was any real impact from the hire.
Marek Svatos (signed and immediately lost on waivers)
Brian Elliott (two-way contract, by the way)
I'm not saying that Davidson wouldn't make a good GM if it came to that. I'm merely saying that the idea of all that experience and respect actually meaning that it would automatically happen isn't the case. I mean, I do follow other sports closely as well...there are several examples of exactly this type of thing happening.
