Garrison is in my good books now, although if he had better control on his shots instead of just trying to drive it out of the park, he'd might have more goals. I have a mandate when it comes to professional sports that is based upon the 'what have you done for me lately' theory. I'm not like Blobby in that I evaluate players on where they were drafted 10 years ago or that they scored 30 goals 5 years ago. I am not a completely closed book, I recognize that Gillis is a good hockey executive, I believe he is more cut out to being a President of a team instead of a GM, I really think he sucks at player evaluating, that ain't a stretch. I am still leaving an open door for Gillis to win me back with the outcome of the Luongo trade, but I think it's too late, he's dropped the ball on that one big time, but who knows, miracles have happened, it will also be interesting to see how he handles the team cap situation next year. This is make or break time for Mikey, we get to see what he's truly made of as a GM and I'm open to that. I know I slag his drafting but Gaunce, Corrado and Jensen as well as little Ricky Schroeder may just save him in that department but we will see, they've proven nothing yet. Outside of that Kassian has done fuck all for me lately as well as Booth, Ballard and then you have 'cross the blue line wrister to the chest' - Kesler who stunk last season and I am also getting fucking tired of his constant string of injuries, there is talent to staying healthy. I simply do not like Booth. Ballad I don't mind just because he seems like a decent dude but he just doesn't possess a very sound hockey mind, positionally he sucks massive. Booth is just too flakey for my liking, his level of passion on the ice, leaves a lot to be desired, not to mention his terrible anticipation of play and terrible puck possession skills, stick handling and passing. There is a reason why Booth never gets PP time, shoot out time, PK time. He's one move Booth with a big fat long term contract that could be put to better use elsewhere.
