Was it Smith who wanted these players to play his version of goon hockey or was it Twohey. What a shame with a team with great talents such as Jenner, Laughton, Biggs,etc. Why did Twohey reward Smith with a 3 year contract in the playoffs and not wait until he saw how the team faired in the playoffs? Will be a tough year in the Shwa next year.
It won't be a tough year next year, I think they will fight for 5 or 6 in the east. Jeff and his scouts have drafted extremly well and will see atleast 3 or 4 guys from his 2012 draft making impacts (manchurek, mcdade, wallace) His first two picks this year should make an impact, harding is small but extremely skilled and vande sompel was in the same academy as Crouse and Konecny.

I do agree with the playoff trades though, Dundas and Mcguire were useless pickups. I would have waited until after the season ends to announce DJ's extension.
