GMs leave prints on teams for many many years. Get this, if Vancouver wins the Cup this year, Burke and Nonis should get about half the credit....how long ago was that.

It's just reality, the guy managed assets poorly, this was basically inevitable...it took Spezza getting hurt for us to realize there isn't anything behind him, and there wasn't going to be any miracles putting top line players beside him until we started over. Gladly we are starting over a little and with a guy who has strengths in what's needed to do so.

You can't acquire top end talent through FA every year, sometimes it's not even there (like this year), and sometimes they choose one of the other 29 franchises. And if you've got no real young assets, no one will trade you any legitimate established top end talent in return for nothing.

The guy needs to do better on his coach hirings..much better. But if Cameron comes in...who's calling that shot?
