Has Homer made a bad move or two? Sure, the Versteeg trade stands out to me as one of them, and his handling of this past offseason was another. But overall I think he's done a good job.
I dunno if Pronger would have made a dif, he's what now, 37-38? even with his exp and hockey smarts, his physical skills would be deteriorating, much like Kimmo
