The GM's job is not to have to babysit the players. This team had no trouble winning over the first 40 games, made it look easy. This is 100% on the players, no excuses.
Oh, but the GM is responsible for putting the team together. At the end of the day, shouldn't it all be his fault for failing to get a good leadership group?
Actually, this is probably the fault of Snider and Comcast-Spectacor.
Sarcasm aside, this exact same song and dance happens every time things aren't going well. Hell, the team loses 3 games in a row and people start throwing Richards, Carter, Pronger, Lavi, Homer, the goalies, and their mothers under the bus. Then when the team wins a couple games everything is bright and rosy.
You act like this group has known nothing but failure throughout their careers.
