Good, and simple man is more like it. I've never seen a GM lack so much brain.

A scapegoat is someone who is blamed for things others have done. But the destruction of the team and a series of bad moves were made on his watch. Houle is not a scapegoat. He is called in this thread, legitimately, an idiot and an incompetent.

I won't dispute that his motives might have been well-intentioned. That doesn't change the fact that, as you said yourself, he was a bad GM and not qualified for the job.
