I would blame Homer (if you can't blame Snider) more for the Bryz contract than the Bob trade. Bob apparently wanted out if not given an opportunity here so there's not much you can do there.
There's so many unknown variables with the Bob trade right now to where you can get an accurate read on it. Bob had a great season definitely Vezina worthy but it was a short season. We've seen many goalies have great seasons early in their career and fall off (Mason, Carey, Raycroft, etc.). I'm not saying Bob will do that but I kind of want to see him do it again so I can a good read on him.
We also acquired picks for Bob that turned out to be goalie Anthony Stolarz (2nd round pick) and forward Taylor Leier (4th round). If either of these guys turn out to be something (especially Stolarz) wouldn't that kind of negate this trade?
So for those reasons I wouldn't jump the gun on the Bob trade. I'm not totally against firing Homer either but not because of this trade.
