I don't know if I'd be all that mad.

Whitney hands were tied, and it wasn't really a scouting mistake as much as a health issue.

Belanger. Guy wasn't that bad until he got here.

Fraser, honestly there is nothing wrong with the guy. He fits the role he was suppose to do here perfectly in LA.

The real problem this team has is not having enough good players, thus putting more pressure on the depth guys.

Is a bit dissappointing that they could find some gems around the league, then again I don't think ST had the balls to pull the trigger either. I mean when you are using Smyth and Petrell in the same game as centers when Adam Hall and other are available for free, there is more to the issue then scouting.
