So far, so good for MacT but it's a long way to go when your top line is aged 23-20-21 y.o. The peak for a player is usually considered to be 27 y.o.
Well, MacT had nothing to do with acquiring any of the players on the top line, so why would anyone give him credit for it - now, or 2 years from now?

Going into the season with proven liabilities like Smyth, and gambling on AHLers like Acton and Hamilton are the moves he should be judged on, and there is no reason to wait 2 years to make that assessment.
