JM the GM allowed JM to coach and picking a head coach is one of the most important things a GM will do. He is the same guy so I don't think it makes sense to completely forgive him as a GM when the team failed again. He is the GM that resigned Stumpel and Peltonen who did NOTHING.
He is the GM who refused to get a tough guy until the owner forced him to.
He is the GM that signed Maclean, Zednik and Dvorak to upgrade our forwards. Aside from a better second half from Maclean and a two week hot stretch from Zednik, we got pretty much zero production out fo thsoe 5 signings. Did he do some good things? of course, but it was not such groundbreaking approach signing Weiss, Horton and Allen. All of the teams are doing it with their young players, if he didn't do it he would not be doing his job at all. Getting Vokoun turned out well but one could argue that he was not very consistent and had his off nights at the absolute worst times. And it was Anderson, not Vokoun, who picked us up when we needed it.
Depnding on how he deals with the areas I mentioned in an earlier post, we will see.
Do you have any proof of this? I've never heard anything along those lines.
