Bowman's report card on his GM duties from 2010-2018, according to KBS Drafting: A No superstars yet, but he's really good at finding NHL talent. He only had one top ten pick, and Boqvist looks really good so far. Trades: Incomplete. If I had to grade him I'd give him a C. Bowman has not been negotiating from a position of strength, as he was cap strapped for the majority of his time here. Is it really fair to judge him for trades that were cap dumps? Nobody's getting fair value when you have to trade someone to get under the cap. FA signings: C Half the time I don't know what he's doing, but the other half he picks up solid depth players. I think having to work with Q gets him in trouble more than he otherwise would. Cap Management: D This is what he's been worst at, mostly for falling in love with his own players too much. Signing Seabrook and Kruger to those contracts was inexcusable. Overall, He gets a C, based on the way college GPA is calculated. He's great at drafting, but average or worse at everything else. With drafting being the most important skill needed at this point in time, would you keep him around?
