Also on Slats, I really disliked him for a long time. More so than I disliked Torts last season, and I think that went unnoticed for few.

But right now I can't say anything else than that I think Slats has made a solid job here in NY from tearing the team apart in 04' up until now. I have one big issue with him right now, and that is his pro-scouting. I am going to look more closely into that and post something when I have time. But besides that area, I think he has done a very solid job.

One can point on Hank Lundqvist falling into his lapse. On Jagr. I think its luck and luck on both accounts, but we are talking about a time frame of 9 years here. Over 9 years, odds are pretty great that you will get a few of those as well as a few real buggers. That evens out.

Slats has stayed in there and built in the right direction. He hasn't been much of a visonary, which also might be argued to be a bit of a downside with him considering him having unlimited resources.
