It's part of hockey and they rarely produce "a big win" for either team involved. Just like signing cheap FA guys to 1 year deals... band-aids. It's tough to evaluate GMs on the basis of how successful their band-aid moves were, but if you feel that's fair go for it I guess.
I do agree with whoever said Shero isn't the best at keeping the bottom 6 stocked with fresh faces / younger wheels every couple years. Adams has long since worn out his welcome. Cooke and Kennedy are getting there, although I believe Cooke can be more valuable for us if he gets a little bit of his edge back / draws a few more penalties.
Sill should of replaced Adams last season. I doubt you will find one WBS follower who has a bad thing to say about him.
Vitale-Sill 4th line. Grit and speed out the ass.
