i don't think he was a genius general manager. he was a limited, reluctant GM but he was smart in his conservative approach - he didn't throw away picks or prospects, he accumulated them. that, along with decent drafts under sexton set the stage for tallon.
He did a nice job at setting this team up for mediocrity.
