Sure we aren't a cup contending team yet, but to go from what we were, to where we are in 4 years is nothing short of amazing. it isn't like we got Malkin and Crosby 2 years in a row. Plus you seem to forget John "Mr.Horrible Contract" Ferguson Jr and the mess he left with players like Blake and Toskala.
I can't stand people who won't give credit where credit is due, until we win a cup. It's a very sad thing.
He is not overachieving with a quick rebuild nor has he created a disaster like say the Islanders are still in. Then again he has big corporate $$$ that other teams do not.
People seem to take the saying of
results to mean he is a terrible GM.
Not that means he is average. Not good nor bad just meh. Average Rebuild is Average.
