With this type of reasoning, it's virtually impossible to be a bad GM. The Campoli trade hurt us because he was a terrible dman and was a plan B for Gauthier misjudging Markov's injury. He then had to get Kaberle which was another terrible move. The guy can't even play now and has to get bought out. You don't understand how any of that hurts a team?

Mara played less than 10 games. Sopel was weak. 4th and 5th round picks are still valuable picks.

His contract was terrible. The term was too long and Cole has always been an up and down player. Dallas got fleeced.

He was forced to re-acquire them because he let those "rentals" walk and failed to replace them....thus icing a non-playoff team.

Do you see how all of these "that didn't hurt us" moves that you absolve Gauthier of actually ended up hurting us in the grand scheme of things?
