oh wait.....GMMG F&*^ed up...never mind.
It's easy to criticize and hindsight is 20/20....but.....this lineup is significantly better and could have been a reality.
If AV wasn't such a fan for AHL grinders with no hands, Hodgson and Grabner would have made this lineups top 6 (for minutes at least) and Hodgson's Dad would have been happy.
It was up to GMMG to realize what AV does to this team.
It was up to GMMG to trade Luongo in the summer instead of keeping him around and messing with team chemistry (this is purely a guess on my part, I have no source).
Add to that not re-signing or giving Torres that extra year to a list of screwups.
He underestimated the chemistry Lappy and Torres had in the cup run, those 2 were great for us.
Now we get a revolving door in the 4th line wing.
