I think Moulson will be missed, but Vanek has a chance to shine on a team seemingly headed in the right direction. Garth absolutely needs to do something about the goalie position. Nabokov isn't getting younger and Poulan doesn't look like he can be a #1, at least not on the NHL level.

Extremely informative and thorough. Knows his stuff, and really spent the time and effort to look at every little thing. Even the current house owner was: "Wow, my inspector was never this thorough!" as he watched Tommy in action. Very happy with his work and felt that he really looked to give us key information that was also for our ownership/maintenance of the house in the longrun. Top notch... and I'm not really one who has the time or the inspiration to give reviews but this is well-deserved. In a field of some mixed review I saw by many others who came "recommended", Tommy Adamescu is one of those rare breeds: the real thing. Was exactly what my wife and I wanted and needed for a home inspection. Hire him without reservation for your own inspection.
