I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens this summer. If the new GM is a media guy/organizational incest (like Houle in the 90s) it's probably not going to be a lot of fun following the team.
I really hope Gauthier was the one behind the Kaberle trade (which I did think was decent at the time) and Martin firing in December. Beyond ticket sales collapsing to Sunbelt levels there's nothing to hold a meddling owner accountable for their mistakes.
