but to be honest I think Galchenyuk is better than all of those and Gallagher as some potential, you're about right on everything else though
Of course Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Eller, Subban and Patches are a better young-core than the previously mentioned core. We all know this. It's just that the arguments,and Bergevin's excuses sound identical to Gainey's and that bothers me.

I will admit I hate the DD extension, but what I'm saying is he's been GM for one year, and he's already made mass improvements (with a long way to go). We're trying to guess his next move, but we just need to be a bit more patient before throwing him to the wolves.
Bergevin was as secretive as Gauthier today. I don't know where you get the notion that he's upfront... unless revealing his character fetish is something that took you by surprise.

People keep telling me he's been GM for one year and I shouldn't comment but that doesn't make sense - you assess a player, a coach, a gm as time goes on, in a continuous ever-evolving manner. As OneSharpMarble said, Bergevin looked like a genius with the Subban extension but then when he gave DD the extension and then Bouillon, the Subban deal looked reckless and unfair and arrogant. He didn't trust PK (Norris - 2013) but trusted Desharnais (who proceeded to suck, in case you don't recall).

So far he's been arrogant and full of excuses. Prices are too high? Too bad, make our team better or get bent, we're into winning, we're not in the excuses business.

Because that's exactly what I was arguing. Sorry kid, you lost this one.
