One thing you didn't see Gainey do much was sell though. You can always get picks back if you want. I am not saying we should go tossing away all our picks (I am a build from within guy, myself) but I don't think it would hurt to try to improve this team this team a little bit. We may not make it past the first round this year, but a playoff run is possible.

I don't remember Gainey doing that too much. For most of his tenure he was a build from within guy. He rarely made a big splash. If anything he was too conservative. Everything changed after 2009. Then he got trigger happy, but probably was under a lot of pressure to do something at that point. Gauthier made a lot of deals. But then again, we had a lot of injuries and had to find replacements.
