Yeah he played for 4 different teams and two stints in Detroit.
My definition of a Franchise goalie would be one that is drafted by the team he retires for and leads them to multiple Stanley Cups and multiple personal awards. AKA Martin Brodeur. Not to mention international status.
It's not the picks that were related, but the assessment of talent. Seeing that Gainey attempted to acquire Fleury in hindsight doesn't look good, but at the time Fleury was highly touted. Similar to how the picking of Subban was highly question on this board at the time, but in hindsight was a home run.
Being upset with Gainey for attempting to acquire the first overall selected player is like getting mad at Bergevin in the future for having attempted to acquire (for argument sakes) Nathan Mackinnon or Seth Jones both of whom right now are labeled as can't miss prospects.
What has Price done for us lately? Not too ****ing much. How Gainey has a job in hockey management is beyond me. I had such faith in the man and he let me down big time. Horrible GM even worse than the goat.
