It's why I think MG will get a chance to stay and try to put together the proper mix of players to succeed in the playoffs like 2011, with his obligatory one head coaching change most GM's get a chance to do.
But you have to agree these last two seasons leave a lot to be desired, and MG's moves haven't been as awesome as the Ehrhoff/Lap/Higgins acquisitions. like the Ballard blowup and Booth has never really had a chance to play too much as of yet but even still while playing he wasn't really a difference maker. I believe the win/loss record wasn't affected with him in or out of the lineup.
The Luongo fiasco was a stress disaster all season, it probably took away from the team spirit or energy or something its hard to explain, but it didn't help the team at all....
But hopefully MG's patience pays off with RL and we get something of value to help our team win in the foreseeable future, I recall people saying we better keep Luongo in case Schneider gets injured for a long playoff run! wtf Schneider was prob' playing at 60-70% health and MG/AV went with him anyway.
But I do hope to see MG swing for the fences and go beyond his comfort zone with these little moves he likes, as HW keeps saying, he doesn't like to move any assets no matter how crappy the player is.
This core is a good one, but the core players need a bit of a shakeup, not a major overhaul but we need that #1 point producing machine to help Kesler.
Our defense has way too many left side dmen, no true QB dman, not enough snarl/size.
Our center depth is in shambles after Manny had that unfortunate accident.
These are the things MG needs to remedy to right the ship and I think the aquamen will give him a couple of years to do that.
