Yup!

Thanks for your time here Moore. Even though I hoped for it to have been longer.

Edit: Although, I'm really curious to know the amount. I think most are, considering his past.

so lets recap shall we...

They took our AHL coach and GM

They signed one of the reasons we made it this far in the postseason for peanuts why we give up a 2nd round pick

They trade for Simon Gagné

They signed Kubina

They have a Steven Stamkos that is on fire

They have Vinny, Malone, Downey and Marty

They signed Ellis, the goalie we traded SK for

They have a lot of good, up and coming defensemen. Victor Hedman leading them

The only good player they lost is Andrej Mezaros

Steve Yzerman is already one of the best GM and he's been at that position for a couple of months...

While all this is happening, Gauthier:

He keeps hamrlik and his 5.5

He takes 3 years to sign our future goaltender

He trades the guy who got us to the ECF without even talking to him first

He lets our future coach go

He signs ALEX AULD...out of all the goalies available (Theo, Turco, Lalime)

He doesnt even TRY to clear cap space

how can we not be frustrated

You forgot one crucial comparison:

- They had cap room

- We didn't ;)

Not that I don't think that Tampa looks to have improved, mind you, but it's sort of silly to say "look at what this GM did vs. what ours did!" and get all upset. Each GM is in a unique situation. Trading for Gagne and his one-year contract, for example, would probably not have been a great move for the Habs who are trying to save cap space this year. Signing Moore would have prevented some of our prospects from getting a shot, something that might not be such a problem in TB.

yeah but if a GM really wants something...he'll find a way to clear cap

we coulve traded AK and his 3.25mil contract as he still has some value

we couldve bought out hamrlik (I love the guy but 5.5...cmon!)

we could have never traded for gomez (im pretty sure cammy wouldnt have said no to playing with pleks and ak)

many things could have been done

If a GM really wants something, he normally has to overpay. Go ask Brian Burke :lol:

Sure there's ways to make room under the Cap, but the goal is to get better and not moving sideways or pulling the trigger on a trade just for kicks.

Trading AK now won't fetch much and you'll likely have to take on salary in return. Buying out Hamrlik was never an option, he's still a top 3-4 guy and you'd need to sign a replacement which won't come cheap on the UFA market.

So their lineup is something like:

Malone-Stamkos-St Louis

Gagne-Lecavalier-Downie

Purcell-Moore-Tyrell

Thompson-Pouliot-Durno

Jones

Hedman-Ohlund

Kubina-Clark

Lashoff-Lundin

Smaby

Smith

Ellis

With 13-14 million cap space left to fill in some more holes, Id predict they will be in the playoffs if they can get 1 more top-4 D and a couple of good 3rd line grinder forwards. Funny but Metropolit might be a good option to center their fourth line and will likely come in around 1 mil. Downie is a pretty good agitator for a 3rd line role as well and Tampa could try and pick up a 2nd line RW on the cheap like an Owen Nolan or Lee Stempniak for one year.
