We got Leetch, Francis, Kilger, Johansson for essentially money and draft picks and a few mid level prospects. Nobody off the roster. Can't complain.
I give him an A-. Fergy loses out on the + because he did not manage to get a backup goalie or a strong defenseman, but to do either of those without giving up a roster player or Cola Fergy would have had to be a magician.
Well done! Much better than Housley and Dougie last year (though I wish we had signed Wesley).
I think the additions are interesting, Leetch & Francis will probably have a direct impact. If Calle can return to anything like his old self, then you've really hit the jackpot. He was a very good defenseman. Also, JFJ added players but he didn't give up much and hasn't changed the team as a whole much. I think that is a good thing. I don't really understand gm's that go totally nuts and buy anything in sight like Clarke in Philly (worst example I could think of..). Now if Quinn can get all these guys to pull in the same direction I think this team can go far.
