In fairness it's easy to be hypercritical when a team is having a brutal slump on a prolonged road trip but it let's you know just getting a lottery draft pick let alone three doesn't nessesarily mean things turn around instantly.

If Katz blew it up and I was the incoming GM I'd be salivating. That team has so many trading chips. Identify the players to keep (Smid, Shultz, Eberle, RNH, Paajarvi, Gagner) get rid of dead weight like Whitney and use guys like Hall and Yakupov to get big strong mean players with some skill.

That roster is stocked, but the balance is way, way off. They just need someone shrewd in there who can make the right moves, and then get a coach there who can coach young players effectively.

Of course with Lowe and Katz being best buds who knows, but I don't think that Katz will put up with losing forever. I'd imagine he isn't used to failure and is near the end of his rope.
