Except the inaction this summer pretty well demonstrated he was that bad. Our GM came right out and said he was trading Hemsky, no question about it. But Hemsky arrived here for camp in September after MacT literally could not give him away. Kind of backs up Spec's opinion.

For some reason, many people (not saying you) just can't handle hearing negative things about this team. One of the worst four year stretches in NHL history, and people still complain about "negative" comments. In fact, how any broadcaster has found something positive to say about this organization since 2009 is a marvel to me. This franchise, it's managers, coaches, and most players deserve every load of verbal poo that have been dumped on them and then some.
Big contracts are hard to move especially when the cap goes down. Grabo is a good player that toronto had to buy out. MacT said specifically that he wouldn't give away hemsky and horcoff by the way, so you're wrong on that account.
