This experiment had run its course before the season even started.

It was a desperate acquisition by a desperate GM. That's usually not a good sign to begin with, but he's simply dead weight from a previous regime, that the current regime is stuck with.

Not only was Spacek's contract more favourable, but he was also the better player at the time of the deal, despite what some people here thought of him at the time.

It would have been nice to have that 4 million dollar cap space to explore other options. At the end of the day, PG actually ends up losing his job, and the team is stuck with deadweight, so nobody wins, except Carolina.

In retrospect, I also put some onus on habs ownership as well for allowing PG to make such a deal when he clearly didn't have their total confidence to begin with.

He's even less valuable to the team than I thought he would be... with markov back, subban signed, and diaz emerging as another offensive option.
