I actually think he did alright. Yes, the Kessel deal was pretty bad, but he took a team devoid of any decent NHL talent and made them somewhat competitive. He also stole Phaneuf for spare parts, signed some good college UFA's (Bozak) and gave the leafs some degree of an identity. Of course they didn't progress fast enough, but I love his aggressiveness and win-at-all-costs mentality (I.e. the Pronger trade). He's definitely the anti-Regier, and I'm cool with that
