Worst:
- Signing Bouillon and offering him an extension
- Giving Desharnais an early extension
As the poster above said. This was horrible in hindsight and a number of us called it. Subban is going to demand a huge ransom and now he'll get - from us or another team offersheeting him. We lost an opportunity to lock him long term at $5.5-6 million. Now he'll demand seven or more.

While I understand BG's approach at the deadline. I do believe we should have made a few more depth moves; look for another Prust (Talbot comes to mind) because the physicality burden was just too much for him.

I also am a bit disconcerted over how Therrien's responded to our dreadful play - backing our way into the playoffs. His insistence to play Desharnais and Pacioretty together all year did nothing to alleviate those concerns.
