I'm not trying to say John Ferguson is a great GM or anything. I'm just saying Bob Gainey is not that great (based on moves, not success). Neither are, but Gainey got to stick to his plan, not many GMs do.
Any team needs stable ownership and management, with no meddling from above. Until Toronto gets a strong GM that runs it his way they will always have trouble. You need a Colangelo type. I would guess now that UFA's will stay away from Toronto as they won't want to deal with the mess there, plus with the CAP Toronto lost its advantage
