The Bruins' recent moves scream incompetence:
1) People around the league seem to be in agreement that they could have (and should have) gotten more for Hamilton.
2) Signing McQuaid to a 4-year deal at $2.75/yr isn't a good use of resources for a team with cap issues.
3) Picking Senyshyn at #15 was clearly a reach, and the experts say there's no doubt that the Bruins could have traded down if they really wanted him, acquiring extra assets in the process.
These feel like the mistakes of a rookie GM. Just one of the above errors would make me worried about the future. Put them together and it might take years to undo the damage. And Sweeney isn't done yet!
If the Bruins wanted to win in the short term, Hamilton should have been a priority. If they felt like their cap situation was too much of a mess, and they needed to rebuild, then they should have gone after the #3 pick and explored trading Rask and going with Martin Jones.
None of the moves in the Sweeney era make sense to me. What am I missing? Can ANYONE explain the logic behind these moves?
