Guy was nothing special, but come on! Who replaced him in Top 6? Some combination of Glass/Jeffrey/Kennedy/Tangradi which is changing every shift? Come on
Also, Sullivan was able to run the powerplay. Talk about our PP entries now.
Yes, I´m blaming Shero for horrible offseason. Just awful. It´s not only Sullivan (he wanted to stay). It´s Michalek as well, that return was poor. And after disappointing season we suddenly became much much weaker team, because we only got Glass.
We also miss Staal badly, but I will give Shero a pass in this case. That was the best longterm solution. But we need to bring someone ASAP, after summer like that this team is not a real contender.
Yeah, the Staal situation was a no-win situation. I actually think we got a better return than we should knowing he did wanna go to Carolina anyway. Too bad we made a questinable pick with the Poulliot selection, but the return was good non the less.
What i dont like is that he went after Parise/Suter, but seemingly no one else. There were a lot of win/win situations on the cheap, Mueller for example. Even if we DID get Parise why couldnt we go after another winger as well?
