    How about that Vanek Trade?

    Haha yeah... There's no light at the end of this tunnel

    I was just listening to Garth Snow "explain" the Vanek trade and he talked about how he also gave up a 1st and a 2nd round pick in that deal, but then he defended it by saying, "but we recovered that 2nd round pick by trading MacDonald."

    I mean... WHAT? What kind of logic is that? "We gave picks away but don't worry, we got one of them back by giving another player away"? LOL

    He's a joke and it's extremely grueling and hard for me to take this team serious until Wang sells.

    Garth Snow should be fired... But he should have a scouting position. Anders Lee has been amazing.

    I hope for your team's sake that Garth Snow gets fired. Horrible GM. I liked the Vanek trade for you guys at the time (although the picks should've been conditional based on Vanek re-signing). In hindsight, the deal looks terrible now that you guys might have a top-5 pick.

    He's a good drafter but cannot make trades worth a ****. Collberg has some upside though kid looked really good for Sweden Juniors over the years good stats

    I do like Collberg, but to not get a 1st back with him is a joke after what they gave up to get him.

    Yeah I'm hoping this Collberg kid pans out I see him as a very good 2nd line player

    Yeah, he's got some nice upside. I hope for your team's sake, you get a huge steal with that 2nd round pick and end up drafting the next Shea Weber.

    Garth's a good drafter but we got raped on the deal... He needs to go as GM

    Gonna be a 1st/2nd line forward kid has potential, but we still lost the trade
