Yeah like Brodziak, Stoll, Greene, Torres, Penner.
At least it sounds like MacT will have the guts to make some moves and not be afraid of the consequences but he hardly blew me away in his time as a coach of being able to get the best out of some players and simply dumping them if they even once got in his dog house.
MacTavish didn't trade any of those guys, the GM did... Unless you are saying he told the GM to trade them, which you really need some evidence to back up.
Penner sure, was in MacT's doghouse, but he outlasted MacT, and has failed to impress in LA.
A better examples of MacT as a bad player evaluator might be a Jason Chimera, who went on to a long decent career.
