As for Sweeney being a genius, I wouldn’t go that far. He’s been very good at re-signing his own players, but he’s done horribly in the trade market and UFA market. His big signings are Beleskey, Backes, and John Moore. He found McAvoy and Carlo in the draft, but also skipped over Chabot, Connor, Barzal, Boeser etc TWICE to draft Senyshyn and Zboril. Genius? No. Awesome at re-signing his own players? You bet.</div></div>
those moves were in the early years of him being a gm. Was it bc he was unexperienced with the job....maybe, but ever since the rick nash trade, everything he’s done has been pretty solid, hence the gm of the yr award this season.
