Glen Sather - A+.

Got Nash for an assortment of expendable assets. Re-signed Stralman for a nice amount. Added bottom-6 depth. Didn't overpay for Prust.

All in all he's really transformed.

Paul Holmgren: A, though there will be much disagreement throughout the league over what the 'A' stands for.

This, he has made great decisions since joining the team and gets value out of every contract he gives. Couldn't ask him for more IMO.

He re-signed the entire fourth line, both goalies, Salvador and Fayne, and I expect Sykora will be back soon enough. Losing Parise sucks, but from the way Parise has talked about colluding with Suter all year to go to the same team, it sounds like Lou didn't have much of a chance to begin with. Poni left too, but he was expected to be a rental.

I'd give Lou a B, personally, but it's not crazy to think he's had a decent offseason keeping most of the Cup Final team intact.

Overall I'd give Chevy an A- for the Jets.

B+ for what he did last season, which wasn't much, but I'm happy he gave a proper amount of time to analyze what he had in the team and not rush into anything.

For example, Wheeler had a rough start to the season and many fans were clamoring for his head (it took him 18 or 19 games to score a goal). As it turns out Wheeler really kicked it into gear and finished on a great note and was probably the Jets best forward.

He took some really low level risks that evened out overall. Acquiring Fehr for a 4th was a low-level bust, but giving Wellwood the one year low $ contract was a gem signing.

Otherwise he didn't do much on the trade market other than deal Oduya for a 2nd and a 3rd, which was very solid value IMO.

A+ for what he's done this offseason however. He made two very solid FA signings in Olli Jokinen and Alexei Ponikarovsky that severely improve the depth of our top 9. It couldn't be overstated how we needed another top 6 centre and he went out and got the best one available and signed him to a perfect 2 year contract (It's perfect because it creates an ideal bridge for Scheifele to crack the big club).

We also only lost Tanner Glass and Tim Stapleton this offseason, which is not a big loss at all.

He also just recently signed Enstrom to a new 5 year contract for 5.75 per, which is great value for a defenseman of his caliber. While it's also being rumoured that the club is looking to extend Kane to a long-term deal around 6 years. He's doing a great job of shedding the stigma that no one likes playing in Winnipeg, by resigning the key talent to long-term deals.

So I feel overall he gets an A- for the work he's done so far.

So he lost your second best forward and captain, but its okay because he resigned your 4th line.

Go to the Pens board and you will see a lot of Pens fans giving Ray Shero an F.

I give Shero a B+. While he didn't add an impact player. He...

1. Traded a 2012 7th round pick for the UFA rights to arguably the best goalie on the free agent market, then signed him to a 2 year deal.

2. Traded Jordan Staal (with one year left on his contract who just turned down a long term extension because he wouldn't be able to play with his brother) to his brother's team, the Carolina Hurricanes for Brandon Sutter, Brian Dumoulin and the 8th overall pick (Derrick Pouliot)

3. Traded Zbynek Michalek as a cap dump, for a prospect he really likes, plus a 3rd round pick, cleared cap space to go after Parise and Suter, didn't get them, but he tried. He has Simon Despres who is ready for the NHL, to replace Michalek.

4. Replaced Arron Asham with Tanner Glass, a bigger, more physical 4th line winger who fights, kills penalties and is not afraid to hit (top 10 in hits last season).

5. Added better depth for the Penguins. Over the past 2 seasons, the Penguins AHL depth signings were C Ryan Craig, D Andrew Hutchinson, C Jason Williams, RW Colin McDonald, D Alexandre Picard G Scott Munroe, etc. He added depth that can help the prospects in WBS, while contributing at both the AHL and NHL level.

F Riley Holzapfel
G Jeff Zatkoff
C Warren Peters
C Philippe Dupuis
C Trevor Smith
RW Benn Ferriero
D Dylan Reese

Doug Wilson (SJ): C-

Good:
Re-signed Vlasic to a good contract
Stuart trade and reasonable signing
Re-signed Galiardi/Desjardins

Bad:
Overpayed for Burish (4 years at $1.8 cap hit)
Letting Winnik go for basically the same price.
Letting Ferriero go for nothing (he's worth more than what Pitt gave him IMO)
Reached on our first rounder (Tomas Hertl)
Have not re-signed Winchester/Moore yet

Does this mean off-season to off-season, or January-Present?

I give McPhee a B+. Without the Varlamov deal I'd drop it to a B-, and the fact that Joel Ward (which is the least sensible contract he's given) scored a game 7 winner last year bumps him from a B for me.

So far a bunch of A's and one B+

I give all the GMs not mentioned yet and A and one random GM a B+ to keep the trend going.
