Yup, good post.

Our defence is now going to be severely tested. I hope someone like Tinordi or Drewiski or Beaulieu breaks out and starts playing qaulity minutes.
I liked the Drewskie move and I'm glad we didn't sell the farm for a vet blueliner.

And how smart is MB looking for picking up Halpern for nothing? All of a sudden we have an effective penalty killer who can actually win faceoffs. Minor move but it looms large late in the game when you need those faceoff wins.

Ryder for Cole I felt would probably hurt us but at least we'd get rid of both contracts by the end of the year so I liked the move... now Ryder is looking like our best forward.

MB hasn't made too many mistakes as far as I can see. As Millertime pointed out, lowballing PK and signing him short term will haunt him but he didn't lose the player and it's not a huge mistake.
