Was feeling a little sentimental over on the HFBoards, so I made a few posts…..here are the relevant parts…

With this decade just about over I figured we could talk about some of our best and worst moves. so give me your choices.
From 2000-2010
Best Free Agent Signing:
Best Trade:
Best Draft Pick:

Worst Free Agent Signing:
Worst Trade:
Worst Draft Pick:

here are mine:

Best Free Agent Signing: Michael Nylander. A PPG+ player for only 3 mil a year. Frikkin steal.

Best Trade: Rangers acquire Jaromir Jagr for Anson Carter…with the Caps picking up some of the tab to boot!

Best Draft Pick:Henrik Lundqvist: 204 players taken before him…including #1 overall pick Rick DiPietro

Worst Free Agent Signing: Wade Redden. 6 years, 6.5 million dollars a season, and he didnt even last 1/2 the contract before being sent to the minors. Without a doubt the worst contract given out in a series of awful contracts.

Worst Trade: There are a few to choose from, but im going the sentimental route. Even though we ended up getting Michael Sauer from the trade, I still think trading Brian Leetch was frikkin disgusting.

Worst Draft Pick: Hugh Jessiman. Need I say more?

Here is the other post…

Since we all are armchair GM’s here, let’s see how we would have done.

Gonna post the past 10 draft results (first round only). I’ll give you who we got, you give me who you woulda taken (at the time…not now, if you didnt pay attention to prospects then, skip the year till you did)…and you can grade yourself.

2000: No pick
2001: Dan Blackburn
2002: No Pick
2003: Hugh Jessiman
2004: Al Montoya, Lauri Korpikoski
2005: Marc Staal
2006: Bobby Sanguinetti
2007: Alexei Cherepanov
2008: MDZ
2009: Chris Kreider
2010: Dylan McIlrath

Here were my picks:
2001: Didnt Pay Attention
2003: Ryan Getzlaf (I definitely beat the Rangers here)
2004: Olesz, Schremp (Call it a push I guess)
2005: Marc Staal…Got the guy I wanted.
2006: Bobby Sanguinetti…same as above
2007: Alexei Cherepanov…same as above
2008: John Carlson.. so far Carlson has 19 points in 51 games, thats .37PPG, mdz has .41PPG…I’m gonna call this a push..though I can totally understand if ppl wanna call MDZ the winner here.
2009: Jordan Schroeder…though Kreider was my 2nd choice here. Too early to tell definitely, but its sure looking like Kreider is the better pick here…by FAR.
2010: Brandon Gormley…way too early to tell, but I think I will end up being right here. *shrugs*
