He signs the convenient FA that could have some impact, got lucky with Jagr and Hank, but misses much more than he hits. What is sorely lacking is a plan. How long is this re-build supposed to go on?
Back to the OP: What do I think Mess what do differently?
He would make it a priority to bring in a top center in his prime. That might take a few years.
He would restore some tradition.
He would require players on the roster "buy-in" to the team concept.
We will agree to disagree...
I don't know what kind of a GM #11 will be, nobody does, so it's all speculation, but I'm wondering what his record as Team Canada GM is for the WC's
You know what the say about opinions and plenty of people have said that about me
