I think people overestimate the abilities of a GM. DL has done a good job (great job? No.) But he can't make Penner play up to his skill level. He can't make Richards have chemistry with everybody. He can't move a player in front of the net. He can't teach Brown a new deke (okay, maybe he can.)

There's a big pipeline of people in charge of the team. It's way too easy to blame DL. The problem is that he hasn't put together a group of players that can play well with each other under their coaching staff. We have a bunch of good players, what we don't have is a set of good pieces to a system. Or we don't have the right system.

Also Brown needs to learn a new deke.
