Not to knock you off your brilliant high horse, but it also doesn't mean he will be a bad coach or GM. What was that about common sense?

I don't understand why you would blindly "trust Mess" to run this team when he's shown no ability to run anything. I understand that you said "in the future", but you didn't give any kind of reasoning as to what makes you so confident that he'll be a good GM.
Yeah I guess being a and also THE leader of 6 Stanley Cups is nothing. More common sense?
