Are we talking about the same Lombardi?

The guy whose young team was touted as contenders but choked year after year after year, until it was about to cost him his job if they hadn't won this year?

The same guy who struck out repeatedly trying to get some scoring support for Kopitar? Couldn't make a big trade. Couldn't sign any big UFAs (e.g. Kovalchuk).

The same guy whose team was borderline to miss the playoffs in February so he had to fire his coach?

The guy who had so little confidence in his team that when he made the deal to get Carter, he traded JJ and included a 1st Round Pick in the deal - but insisted that it be Lottery Protected in case they missed the playoffs?
