Lots of autopsies on the Petr Sykora/Minnesota Wild experiment today as the Wlogosphere masticates this "story."
Sure it didn't work out, for any of a number of different reasons.
But here's the bottom line for me: I'd still rather have a GM with the honesty to see a hole in the roster and the sack to go out and try to fill it, than a GM with neither of those qualities.
There's no GM out there with a 1.000 batting average on FAs.
But Wild fans should have a clear memory of a GM with both a crippling case of myopia and a stunning ability to delude himself into a state of reticence, if nothing else.
No, the grass ain't always greener....but in this case it is.
