There were others. His choice of coaches wasn't so hot. The fact that the Habs finished 28th a year ago turned out to be lucky (no credit to Gauthier) although I always felt that they were a lot better than that.
Cammy trade was good. Getting rid of AK was dumb as hell IMO. Said he wanted to stay and would take a discount to do so. Good for 20 goals and a physical game, defensive game improved a lot under JM. Emelin came because he wanted to, Pac and Subban came up because they played good enough to deserve it.
