Grading the B's off season to date


With camp ending and a bit of a lull in off season activity I thought it would be a good time to reflect on and grade the B's moves thus far in the off season.

 

I would personally give them an A so far.

I liked Seguin over Hall, Knight and Spooner both seem like solid picks, and using the 15th pick on a former top 3 pick with 30 goal potential?  Great draft to me

They resigned Recchi and all 3 defensemen which I was highly doubtful they could do. 

They got Paille back for a good deal and if the bring Campbell on as the 4th line center that's an upgrade over Begin to me also.  

Moving the little engine that could (Vlad) was a bit disappointing but 100% understandable. 

If Wheeler can be signed to a 1 or 2yr deal under $2M, that's icing on the cake for me.

Overall I really can't think of how this off season could realistically be going any better.   Other then somehow getting cap relief while adding value to the team in a trade (which still could happen) it's hard for me not to suggest this is an A level off season to date.

Off season could get worse though - moving Savard would drop the grade to B, maybe C depending on how it shakes out.  I'm not a fan of addition by subtraction or one step forward and to steps back type off seasons.
