The Stealth Slips (Again)

Well our anointed hero Sir Stealth has done it again. He is collecting plaudits from the main stream drive-by-media for an 18-year-old "tough" defenseman that he drafted to the surprise of everyone including him. There was no praise from the trio covering the draft on Versus.

He then completed his daily double blunder by trading former number one pick Bobby Sanguinetti to Carolina for a sixth rounder this year and a second rounder next year. I have a question for the Stealth. We drafted a first round pick, Sanguinetti, who was to be the next Leetch, for two meaningless draft picks. It says The Stealth doesn't know what he's doing or he just gave away the store. Do you know what you are doing Sir Stealth? Do you know that you gave away the store?

What do you expect when we have a GM who is not only absent from his duties but also absent from his brain power.

I was right the first time. You don't belong here, Sir Stealth, go back to Edmonton.
