why did you let Burns go?!
I guess i don't know the mechanics behind it all, but I wouldn't have traded burns for anyone on your Add list.

Couldn't have gone much worse.

Burns and Havlat let go for, who exactly?

And JS Giguere? Why?

Havlat, Cullen, Burns and Cuma gone for Stajan, Franson and Kovalev basically? This team would be soooooooo slow. Not to be harsh, but this team have virtually no upside to it and A LOT of the players are well past their prime.

I would be outside Fletcher's office with a burning pitchfork if this is what our team looked like.

Yeah but we traded away Matt Cullen (at least I think we did) and Erik Haula. That makes it a negative.

So did you get like 9 first round picks or are we just fictionally tanking?

Pretty sure you will never get a job as a GM of even a beer league.

It's a bad sign when the last trade is the best one.

L.O.F.L. Sometimes there's just nothing scathing enough to say.

At least the Wild will get the first overall pick in 2012 instead of handing it to Nashville.

I looked at this again, and in hindsight, the sheer awfulness of this must make this a joke.

I looked this over again as well. One more jab real quick. This would be the slowest team in the history of hockey. They would get burned so bad by so many teams. Nearly every team's top line could skate circles around any one of these lines.

It's also horrible because he has over ten million tied up in Giggy and Bax. He really gave up a promising third line center and a promising prospect to double up with a goal tender who is worse than the one he also traded to the leafs?

Harding + his contract >>>> Giggy and his contract.

Full Sundae of Dumb with Stupid sprinkled all over it.

Now this guy traded a 2nd Rnd. pick or Erik Cole's UFA rights. Only to see Cole test free agency...

Sort of glad we have Fletcher running the show now.
