Got that part. Check.

that isn't getting hampered by the GM's inability to manage assets and the salary cap,
Debatable on whether or not they have this. You say they are hampered by this, however they have a pretty deep team with some good assets and continue to be a top team in the league. They don't seem to be hampered that much. If you want a good team, chances are you going to have to spend to the top. Pretty sure the last few Cup matchup teams (Canucks and Bruins last year both at the top, Flyers at the top and Blackhawks within $1 mil the year before) have been at or very close to the top of the cap.

and doesn't constantly make and repeat the same idiotic and avoidable mistakes.
I'm not sure what mistakes he has repeated. This re-entry waivers mistake hasn't even happened so let's at least wait until tomorrow to crucify him for that. Trading draft picks? I think they have done ok with the picks they have and signings they made to really call this a mistake. He may have shed a few he didn't have to, but again, a "mistake" like that doesn't really matter if they make up for it in other ways. If they had all those picks, would we have Bob? Read? Harry Z? Who knows?
