In general, I think GMs are overrated. Jim Rutherford is an absolutely wretched GM, but the one time he fired his coach it won him a Cup. I don't think anyone would trade Holmgren for Brian Burke either. Burke got overrated by the Leafs because Scott Niedermayer wanted to play with his terrible brother. He got lucky too.
