- Signed Sturm and dealt him within same year.
For Booth, who, say what you want about him now, looked like a great deal at the time
- He signed Sundin to a 8M+ contract, which was garbage.
I thought the deal Sundin was signed to was excellent for this team-- I would make that signing 100/100 times.
I don't think any of these were bad moves. I think the worst moves he's made include Letting Ehrhoff and Torres go when the money they were asking for didn't seem too outrageous.
