I guess that this report should have been preceeded with "In the context or mediocre management we had in the past 20 years, Gauthier wasn't the worst. Then, I would have agreed...but not because HE was great.....
I agree that we should ignore all the meh trades his two big trades were the Halak and Cammalleri ones. I think he came out pretty good with both of those.
Besides those he gave some picks away for players that were here for a short period of time but played well for us, but then re-aquired equivalent/better picks so overall that's a positive as well.
I don't think anyone considers his tenure great but it wasn't bad either. At the end of the day his best decision was probably throwing in the towel on the 2012 season and it cost him his job.
