You don't know how things are going to pan out. We don't have a crystal ball that tells us what each player will be like tomorrow or 5 years from now.
Our GM is supposed to do whats best for the team at that time in order to put us in a position to win a Stanley Cup, but without sacrificing our future entirely.
The thing to remember is even if MG pulled the trigger on a big deal, who's to say that it will work for us? How much of what happens in hockey, and with player development is luck or guesswork!? More than we like to think I guess.
If we put ourselves in his shoes at the time, how many people would make the same moves he did, how many people would end up making worse moves than he did? I'd say most of us would do worse.
Right now we have some good and great players. A lot of which have been injured or are playing with new people and most of which are frustrated.
Everyone in this place has high expectations and that's good, but if you don't set realistic goals and understand that hockey is as much luck as it is skill then we end up disappointed.
If we look at the season as a book we are half way through. That doesn't mean we know how its going to end. Just because this chapter isn't as good as we hoped doesn't mean we should throw it down tell it it's terrible and pick a new one.
Have some faith, have some patience and you might be surprised how this story ends.
