Why aren't the Avs a "1st CLASS" organization anymore?

The lack of commitment from management is shocking. The current GM appears to be a dolt.
He has gutted a once promising young defense corps into a jumbled disaster.
He overpaid for Varlamov, although Varlamov seems to be doing well. Seeing the building half empty is depressing. Seeing this team when they come to SoCal as I do, I cannot figure out what the heck they are trying to do. There are talented forwards.........but crappy results. I an surprised that Sherman and Sacco have lasted this long. As for the organization talking to the press.....Pierre was always a complete *****. Met him once at a game in LA, and he was a total *****. Apparently, nothing has changed. Mike Haynes must be dying a thousand deaths these days.
