Trading Dubinsky/Anisimov without adding another forward up front, even via free agency. Nash deal is a no-brainer, obviously, but he just offset losing depth by losing depth, and he didn't replace any of it.

Failing to get a legitimate difference maker on the backend in his 13 year tenure here, coincides with the last year as well.
Oh come one Zenith, you're better than that.

The Nash trade is one you do 10 times out of 10. Anisimov blows hot and cold and is way too streaky. Dubinsky is overpaid for what he provides. We miss Dubinsky's grit, but his contract was necessary to get rid of (FYI, if he magically gets amnestied by Columbus, I'd offer him a new cost-effective contract in a heartbeat). Feds is old and doesn't have the wheels anymore to play the kind of game we need to be successful. Everyone couldn't get wait to kick Mitchell out the door last year, but now b/c he scores 9 goals for one of, if not the worst team in hockey, he is retrospectively an integral cog in our team.

I will give you Prust. Sather should have doshed out the extra cash to keep him b/c it is becoming more and more evident that he was the heart and soul of this team.

In sum, Sather is a terrible GM and should have been fired ages ago, but don't make it as if all these players (besides Prust) are difference makers for us.
