That's not the point. The statement was "How do you look at a team in last place and say the GM has done a good job?". You don't value a GM in such a simple, ridicule way. Plenty of good gms have had bad seasons for one reason or another. Sure, team performance is part of the job evaluation, but it doesn't mean you can reduce your analysis to that.
Gauthier and Gainey aren't a "combo". That's exactly what I was talking about in a previous post about how people see the entire management team over the last years as some monolithic entity. No, Gauthier being Gainey left hand man doesn't change anything - they clearly have different management style.
