I dont disagree with you regarding the responsibility of the GM to fill in the holes.

But to fill in the majority of the roster via trades or FA?

Take out Carey Price and the years 2003-2006 were disaster drafts. 2007 was a home-run. 2008 and 2009 were not even close to being mediocre drafts. 2010 forward is still too early to grade.

Those 6-7 years with not much to show for it has hamstrung this franchise. And the effects will continue for years because there is not much in the minors right now.

But he did have one really solid year (2007) and Carey Price was a great pick in a year where the rest of the picks were sub-par.
