He should have written this piece a month ago. Atlanta's sports media is way to easy on the locals.

Brunette had one good year with Minny, the worst affect of that decision was that "the captain" Ray Ferraro sulked and sleepwalked through the next season because his good buddy Bruno wasn't around.

I think DW has been pretty solid on trades(when he has made them) and drafting. However his FA pickups have generally disapointed and he cannot assess NHL ready goaltending talent if his life depended upon it. The Thrashers have not had NHL quality players between the pipes, ever.

I would also agree with the risk adverse suggestion. He is just unwilling to give up quality to get quality. I believe Audette is the most talented player he has ever traded, and that was only at the trade deadline.
