And the end of the day, the guy who signs the checks calls the shots, and if the people he hired to make those decisions isn't doing their job, then it's on Terry to step in and make it happen. The buck stops with him. You're also making a big leap there, assuming because he would make one hockey related decision that he would automatically make more and more of them. Seeing as how he personally flies to visit free agents, I think he's more involved in the hockey process than that to begin with.
Then that's currently a fault with Black, not Pegula. Lindy being fired is a function of Darcy, and making sure Darcy does what he's supposed to is a function of Black. If Darcy's not being pushed to make some kind of decision or isn't willing to fire Lindy, then Black has to instigate that. If Black doesn't want to do anything about it, then yes, at that point you're up to Pegula doing something about since there's nobody left. Pegula skipping over Black and making decisions on his own is just a bad idea. Black knows hockey operations, Pegula doesn't. Let him handle it.
