How our rebuild process goes depends on the next GM; Sutter's got to go.
I agree with you in that he should have remained the headcoach. But going back to the Leafs, didn't Quinn get fired after leaving the GM duties to Ferguson? Probably got scared
Ha, yeah, but poor old Quinn also got fired in Vancouver after hiring Rick Ley as coach so he could focus on GM duties.
I'm not a Leafs fan, but the problems in TO are many. The fans and media seem to feel they are entitled to a winning team without ever having to go through a rebuild. The owners don't care about winning as long as the fans keep coming and the TV audience tunes in. This puts pressure on the GM to do quick fixes.
Calgary fans should take this to heart; the route to the top is usually via the bottom.
