I mean, you could, but it's borderline nepotism. If that's your mindset, then so be it. Many of you people have blinders on. It's up to you to determine whether it's in your best interests to remove them.
My point is you are using NOTHING as a gauge for your dislike for him. Even if you feel it's a big jump to go from his current position to that of a GM (something another poster pointed out is a place Yzerman was in as well), that still is an unjust of a reason to say he'd run a team into the ground for 3 staight dead last seasons as it would be for me to say he'd be a great GM because he was a great player.
You are bashing the guy for no just reason, and that is where your lack of respect is showing.
