It's just one of the problems. Alan Cohen and H. Wayne Huizenga were the two biggest problems since 1997.
Cohen seems to be getting the message and learning how to be a good owner. Now if he'd go one step further and hire a hockey man to be president of the company and just sit back in his luxury box and enjoy, we'd be all set.
But ultimately we've had GMs (and one pushy coach) who've been part of some bad drafting over the years, as well as a string of bad luck (would Stewart have become a bust if he weren't injured two seasons ago? He seemed set to stick with the Panthers after being called up after all) and a lack of a development system. So there's at least room for optimism.
It'll be a big step forward if the Panthers aren't one of the league leaders in man-games lost this season.
