This isn't an impact trade, nor was it meant to be. It was asset management. It is better to get something for a UFA that you have no plans on re-signing (especially when you are not a contender) than to get nothing at all for him. The Avs got great value out of that trade, and potentially the two best players in the trade.
Technicalities.. doesn't matter who is he off to a good start with, the fact is that he is off to a better start than the guy he was traded for, but that really doesn't matter to me.
We can evaluate all the little details of Sherman's trades all we want, but the bottom line is this team can't make the playoffs, to me Sherman isn't doing his job period.
When listening to Avs interviews from management to players, they sound so full of themselves and very cocky. They make promises that they are going to be better, stronger, making the playoffs etc.. yet they seem to be worse every year.
After one win they make it sound like this team is the best team in the league, they talk about how they can win every game, then they go on losing the next few games where they don't even look like an AHL team.
When will Sherman realize this team needs some good d-men, when will he realize this team needs a better coach? who knows, maybe he realizes but his hands are tied and not much he can do about it, or maybe he's just not a good GM.
