Tanguay was not elite (he sure was a good player though) but letting him go away for nothing after he refused to play injured was another brain dead move by Gainey; especially if you factor in how much (too much) Gainey paid for him.
The best part was when Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev was producing.. then for some seemingly unknown reason in the play-offs Gainey (who took over behind the bench) switched to Laraque-Koivu-Kovalev against the Bruins. What an embarassing series.
