Every situation is different. I'd say with his knowledge of the game and knowing what you need to win a cup, since he did it 5 times, that should help.

Can he be worse then Sather in free agency yet could he be better in trades?

It is also about the other people in place through the organization. Having Gordie Clark running the drafts, I think he would be fine with having good people in place, which I think we have outside of Sather. How else would we have some sort of a youth movement going without outside influence on Sather
That's two our of how many hundred good/great players?

That's one GM out of 30 and one coach out of 30

Quick counter to both guys.

Gretzky was brutal as a GM

Trottier was Brutal as a Coach

And further, what has Dallas done so far that would make what Joe's done so special?

And with Steve Yzerman? Seriosuly? He steps into a situation where the team already had their core together.

What has he done to be considered a success?

For every good/great player that finds success in the front office (Coach or GM) there are so many more that have failed to get hired in those roles or succeeded once posted to that role.

Messier would eb no different. Odds are that he would fail.
