Taking risks is part of a GM's job, and luck plays a role in determining whether that risk bites a GM in the butt.
I don't see why you call it luck that the risk ended up not manifesting itself. The Stars took aggressive steps to change Kari's outlook on training and personal health. They sent a specialist to Atlanta immediately that summer to begin working with him on making those changes, something the Thrashers organization never bothered to do.
