BTW, that's why you don't just keep guys hanging around like Mueller and Flash, and rather turn the page and move on as an organization looking ahead. If SJ would have left some spots open, they could have McGinn and who knows what else playing at a high level for them. Instead they more or less just keep the same group.
Losing Coyle for the perpetually injured Burns was a horrible trade for them, especially since Coyle was the last ace prospect they had left in the system. And it's early yet, but he's looking really good for the Wylde right now.

I'd say Wilson has done a really good job overall, but he messed up on his last two trades big-time. Not sure why he let Winnik walk. They could really use him this season.

McLellan's definitely a goner, but I wouldn't be floored if Wilson were shown the door as well. I think if they flip Thornton/Marleau for good returns they might be able to stage a quick rebuild around Couture/Pavelski. But that might be hard with two big-salary players like that and a cap that's going down next season.
