With Homer you get good moves and bonehead moves. Here are some.
- Acquiring rights to Timonen and Hartnell
- Coburn for Zhitnik
- Leino for Tollefsen and 5th
- Voracek, 1rst and 3rd for Carter
- Richards for Simmonds, Schenn and 2nd
- Mason for 3rd + MFL
- Eminger and 3rd for a 1rst
- Carcillo for Upshall and 2nd
- Giving away a 2nd to get rid of Gauthier's contract (cap issue)
- Signing Bryz
- Trading Bob
- JVR for L. Schenn (looking that way)
Of the bonehead moves, only Eminger and Bob were relatively major and solely down to him. Hell, in the Bob deal didn't we get the pick that turned into Stolarz? That might end up paying real dividends.
The rest are very minor or forced moves. Bryz was the only goalie on the market and we needed a goalie. Simple as that, when your boss tells you to sign a goalie, you get one.
