you're judging jfj strictly on the short time he had with the leafs. you have a clear double standard if you don't feel he should have had 10 years before being judged.
That's kind of funny isn't it.
Give the GM with 12 years experience 10 years to rebuild a franchise, but give the rookie GM 4 years.
Vaive and Ludzik on collapse, and Phaneuf.
