I'm not so sure I'd give as much praise to Shero as some of you give him.

Let's be honest, we only got Iginla because Jarome wanted to come here and he jinxed the trade with Boston. If not for him doing that, Boston would've gotten Iginla. Shero basically offered an underwhelming package however overpaid for 2 pluggers like Morrow & Murray.

In the past year:
I Love the Iginla trade (which he lucked out on only because Iginla was stubborn and jonxed the deal to the Bruins).
Love the Jokinen trade.
Love the Staal deal (however he messed it up by not drafting Forsberg. I like DePo but we can all argue the pick).
Like the Vokoun acquisition.

Hate what he paid for Murray & Morrow.
Hate the Glass signing, thus far.
Michalek deal was laughable.
No comment on wasting time with the Boychuk experiment.
Unhappy with losing Brian Strait for nothing.

Overall, I think he's been underwhelming.
