    I hereby nominate Ottawa Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion for the Worst NHL General Manager of All Time award. Never have I seen such display of incompetence and poor decision making in all of my years watching hockey.

    I would also hereby nominate Ottawa Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion for a second award, the Worst General Manager in All of Sports History award.

    Please use this thread to discuss other nominations for Worst NHL General Manager of All Time and Worst General Manager in All of Sports History and where you find Pierre Dorion ranks amongst your nominations.

    It's a toss up at this point. Mike never traded a Karlsson for peanuts

    I suspect the Karlsson trade will not turn out as horrendously as Milbury's trade of Chara.

    But Chara wasn't a perennial Norris trophy candidate yet, EK is

    PD let himself get used and abused,he never should have taken that extension.....He should have remained patient as he likely still would have had a job and would have gotten is chance...Under a likely better owner,now he is ruined and takes all the heat for a billionaire that could give two ****s about him

    Dorion is a coward of a man. I hope he remains unemployed after he inevitably gets fired. Worst GM in Senators history.

    .... Milbury traded Luongo, Spezza, Chara, Bertuzzi, Jokinen, McCabe, and Salo for peanuts while signing some of the worst contracts in league history.

    But, as usual, hyperbole and dramaticism prevail!

    Like, I don't like Dorion at all. Talking about it in fantastical, exaggeratory, aggrandized terms is just stupid and boring, though.

    Zach Smith trade sends Sens fans into shambles.

    Any GM working for Melnyk would qualify for this award.

    Dorion isn't great but whatever good he could do, he can't because of Melnyk.

    He wasn't traded, he was waived.

    He is a pretty terrible GM not sure if he is the worst given he has a piece of **** boss pulling the strings on a lot of the decisions.
    Definitely is the worst spoken GM of any sports team I've ever seen

    Pierre Dorion:

    • Trades his best goalscorer for a 4 million dollar per year veteran, bottom-6 player, instead of picks and prospects. Says, "We need to surround our young kids with veterans."
    • 4 months later, waives veteran leader Zack Smith.

    What would you rather have, in a rebuild?

    Zack Smith + 2nd + 4th + 5th
    or
    Mikkel Boedker

    Pierre Dorion prefers Boedker.

    At least Mad Mike had the stones to say :
    "You dont like me signing Alexei Yashin to a 10 year deal ? Well **** you I'll come into the stands and beat you to death with your own shoes."

    I might be conflating several events but you get the idea. ;)

    I bet if you asked 30 GMs who they would take, Chara in his prime or Karlsson it would be spilt 50/50.

    Again, Chara wasn't Chara, let alone in his prime, when Milbury traded him.

    Worst Milbury trade was Luongo & Jokinen for Kvasha & Parrish.

    He also signed Yashin to that massive deal.

    Knowing that, I'll put Dorion right there for giving away the best defenceman in the world for table scraps and strangely refusing to deal within conference despite not having a competitive team in the near future.
