With Sobotka, I'm not sure what you are talking about, since hitchcock wasn't even in St. L when that trade happened. And even if you didn't know what a player Sobotka would have turned out, they would have been much better off getting someone who couldn't just bolt via UFA. Sobotka today would have looked great in a top-9 role on the Av today, especially since he can play both center and wing (and would have taken the sting out of losing RoR if they so choose).

Mcginn Parenteau, etc are decent players, but they are mere replacements for players that should have been there, such as Mueller, Flash, that they severely mismanaged.
hahaha so much fail here. Mueller couldnt stay healthy and was always one concussion away from it being all over. They had to let him go. Flash had a condition which apparently doesnt help in altitude had to be let go. The Avs replaced them with PAP and Mcginn both guys have been pretty good for the Avs.
