I left the Kessel and Seguin trades out since it will just become another debate with stanjon/marco/neely66
If one wants to argue the Peverley deal was a loss, okay, but he was instrumental in that Cup run.
I made the Thomas deal a wash, but I can see it as a win as it cleared cap space.
I see the Boyes trade as a win since he turned it into Horton/Campbell but I doubt he thought of that at the time.
I'm sure I left a few out, but every g.m has some regrets, but I'd tell you to look at how many of those players he got that are still on todays roster, which is very deep on a very good team.
The Jagr deal could also be argued as a wash, they did reach the Finals, but I'd say his offensive output, which is why he was brought here, was dissapointing. Clearly, the scouts failed ot see the length of his stick when recommending this one. For that reason alone, heads should role.
