If we trade Bourque for a 2nd a decent prospect and sign AK, maybe don't improve our team in the here and now but our future becomes brighter and that is good asset management.
We probably won't get AK but the long-term effect of what you believe is that we'll keep firing coaches and GM's until "they" get it. Good asset management makes for smart , successful coaches and bad asset management makes for "see you later" losers.
That 2nd round pick wouldn't have saved Gauthier, who by the way signed Gill and a few months later that year traded him for a 2nd and a prospect. So he must be even better at asset management. Also it's not just about amassing assets. Moore was important in that playoff run. Price himself said he matured a lot sitting on the bench watching Halak in that run. That run also turned into us getting Eller. It no doubt also helped PK.
