I think a huge part of the problem is his arrogance.

Because of my age I know it doesn't have to take 5 years blah blah blah.

Well, when you open your mouth and pound your chest you better be able to deliver.

I thought the Kessel trade was premature, it just didn't make sense for a team that JFj had identified 2-3 year prior as being due for a rebuild to make that trade.

I'm going to give Kessel the opportunity to become a 200 foot player before I declare. We know just putting up personal points doesn't make a team a winner, but there is no reason he can't be a positive player on the ice beyond putting up empty calories.

IMO the team would have performed much better if arrogance hadn't got the better of him again, and he had jettisoned Wilson before the last season of damage.
