Look at DUHockey's post. That explains it pretty well.
He inherited a team that was ready to succeed. A very large amount of the core that's here now was in place when he took over. He had fricking Peter Forsberg (pre-injury) to trade. He wasn't exactly in a bad position.
He's put a good team together now, definitely, but he's given out so many bad contracts and has made so many bad trades that, probably in anywhere from one to three years, his ****** management of the cap and continual trading of all our high picks is going to come back to bite us in the ass in a big way.
A competent GM wouldn't have made a lot of the mistakes that he's made and wouldn't have set us up for trouble in the future.
Besides, what hast Homer won so far? He hasn't won a division chamionship IIRC and the team has only been to the SCF once and lost. We've made the playoffs every year, sure, but last year was the first year that anything of note happened in the playoffs for us and even then we were extremely fortunate to get to the SCF last year.
