So nothing basically is what your saying... Do either of those guys compare to Ladd, Campbell, Gonchar in his prime, Guerin, Recchi, etc.... Good GM's bring in quality vets that can show the young guys how to win. Tambo did not and now were here 4 years later wondering what went wrong. Well no need to wonder, I knew in 2010 that this rebuild was a failure as soon as we didn't bring anyone in to help Hall and Eb's(more then most teams need to build around). Then in 2011 after RNH when our prized acquisition of the off season was "top pairing" d man Cam barker I knew we were totally f'd. Unfortunately fans took the tale that we're Pittsburgh/Chicago/Boston in the making hook line and sinker. We rebuilt like the Atlanta Thrashers circa 1999-2003, and the majority of the fanbase is now just clueing into it.
