He wasn't that bad as a GM. He was stupid to let Glencross and Hejda walk.

I'm on the fence with Mac T, lets see how he does.

The Eakins hire and opting to go with Dubnyk/Labarbera were disastrous moves on Mac T's part. Rookie GM mistakes. Signing Gagner in the summer and not moving him when his value was at its highest is another mistake. He also apparently offered David Clarkson a dump truck full of cash, thank goodness we got bailed out of it.

The MPS for Perron swap was a very good one. The Hendricks deal was solid. Gordon was a decent signing.

Scrivens has been good though I suspect that was more on Mac T trying to bring in players familiar with Eakins (Scrivens, Fraser, etc.).

the one thing mact has done that no other GM here has done is recognized his mistakes and corrected them. the goalie issue was dealt with as soon as he could get improvement, now putting gagner on the block. garbagekov in the ahl, the only one he hasnt is eakins, which means he must see something that tells him that he is not a bust.
