I've been on both sides of the fence with him.

I give credit where credit is due, but let's wait until the Kings get out of the cellar and actually have games in April mean something before we anoint him the savior. I was on board with giving him a few years even after the Cloutier disaster, but gutting the team is not the right message to send. Not to the team, nor the fans. Keep in mind they're in a market where they're not the only team in town, and they've lost a lot of fans or potential fans to the Ducks. And AEG sent out their stool pigeons during the summer to quell the storm that is annoyed Kings fans.
