Let's be serious now. Do you really think Gainey needed Gauthier's feedback to know who Scott Gomez was? gainey didn't just climb out from being under a rock for 8 years. It's not like he traded for some obscure player playing 4th line in San Jose, he had 700 NHL games plus 114 playoff ones on 3 long playoff runs, if gainey didn't know him he was a HUGE failure as GM.
Blaming Gauthier for Gomez would be worse tahn blaming Timmins for McDonagh getting traded away. I'm sure Gainey needed more feedback on mcDonagh as a prospect tahn on Gomez as an NHLer.
