I agree with the Fire Mack sentiment to a point. People make blanket statements about him destroying the team or stripping it bare yadda yadda is stupid too though.

It's not like he hasn't made acquiring Canadian talent a priority. He just hasn't found the right talent so far. Etienne, Muamba, Poblah are all only second year guys. Pencer is still a rookie and he isn't even able to progress further ATM so he could take another couple years. Doug Brown retiring and being replaced by this point in time simply wasn't possible. Cutting Clint Kent was probably the dumbest move this year made by management but that one falls on LaPolice. Willis for draft picks wasn't great either but he hasn't been missed on defense as much as a healthy Lobendahn or Kent.
