Remove the mistakes

If we could remove the mistakes of the past 10 years. What would be the actual line-up. Let's give us a limit of 3 moves we could remove.

Ex. I would not do the Gomez trade and neither the Cammalleri trade and i would have kept wizniewski.

Line up

Vanek Desharnais Pacioretty
Galchenyuk Plekanec Gallagher
Cammalleri Brière Gionta
Higgins Eller Prust

Markov Subban
McDonagh Wizniewski
Tinordi Gorges

Price

I know it doesn't do anything and it probably doesn't fit under the cap but I thought it could be fun to wonder what could have happenned with some foreseeing from our gm and it´s also fun to constate that those are all moves that could of been avoided pretty easily.

How do you know we suck enough to draft Galchenyuk with that lineup?

If you are going to remove the Gomez and Cammalieri trade you will have to remove Galchenyuk as well.

Don't dismantle the core after the centennial season and buy a new one via FA. Asset management has really put the hurt on this team since '94.

Remove: Galchenyuk
Add: Ryan McDonagh and one of Hertl/Teravainen/Maatta/Laughton.

Which do you prefer? Honest question.

1. Definitely draft Claude Giroux instead of David Fischer
2. Don't trade Mike Ribeiro for garbage.
3. Don't trade for Scott Gomez (I don't care for who)

Here's more:
4. Draft Dustin Brown instead of Andrei Kostitsyn (Draft anybody else in that first round)
5. Draft Travis Zajac instead of Kyle Chipchura
6. Draft Kristopher Letang instead of Guillaume Latendresse
7. Draft Milan Lucic instead of Ben Maxwell
8. Don't trade Max Lapierre for scraps
9. Don't trade for Kaberle (I don't care for who)
10. Don't let Mark Streit walk
11. Don't trade Jarro Halak for non roster players 1 month before the draft.
12. Don't trade a 1st pick for Tanguay.
13. Draft Adam Henrique instead of Danny Kristo
14. Draft Chris Kreider instead of Louis Leblanc.

Plenty to chose from lol

Good question, this should be the real thread.

If it's McDonaugh + Hertl/Tervainen then I go with these two

If it's Maatta/Laughton instead.. I stick with Chucky

Since drafting is a crap shoot too often, I think you would have to limit this to trading mistakes.

1 - Don't trade McDonough and Higgins for Gomez

That's it folks... This is one of the worst all time trades. Just imagine McDonough and Subban on the top pairing

We gotta include Pierre Turgeon in this lineup. He shouldn't have been traded for Shayne Corson. I pencil him in somewhere between Max Pacioretty and Richard Zednik.

So you'd be also fine with Hugh Jessiman, Robert Nilsson, Steve Bernier, Marc-Antoine Pouliot, Anthony Stewart, Brian Boyle, Jeff Tambellini or Shawn Belle?

Rangers should trade McDonagh for Rene Bourque. Gomez's contract hurt us enough. Watching Ryan joining the elite class of NHL defenders in Rags is too much. If only he was 38 already, the pain would go away in couple of years.

I will never understand how we not only took that ridiculous contract from the Rangers, but we also gave up a top pairing defenceman for him. That trade should have been Higgins for Gomez straight up, and the Rags should have been overjoyed we rid them of the contract.
