It's not only time to address futility, but also the fact that he has not done a good enough job. Teams should be able to score more goals than the Kings do by accident. This is going to result in Quick asking for a contract over $7M/year, because it's nearly inarguable that Quick is keeping the franchise afloat by himself.
I've given Lombardi a lot of chances, but pretty much every draft pick has underacheived, free agents haven't gone to LA, and the Mike Richards trade - at least after a few months - looks absolutely awful and arguably has set back the franchise, even if Richards has done well. The Penner trade has also been a disaster, even if there wasn't much of a choice in the matter. Some of these problems are players, and the coach(es), but at some point it needs to be the GM's problem.
well if it comes to the Gm choices we have to many EX for my taste.
former 30 goal scorer
former Stanley Cup winner
former star defender
former successfull coaches.
Everythign is former but not present
What Lombardi is doing is going by names not by skill.
He tries to eleminate any risk. And this is leading nowhere
