#1, I think Granato is a really good
There is really no validity to him being an idiot, if the only reason is he works for his dad. It is definitely reaffirms Lacroix's nepotism, which doesn't need reaffirmation. It is hard to judge someone that doesn't make decisions that directly effect the team. But like I said, he played for a long time in the NHL. I don't doubt there is some hockey knowledge and we probably shouldn't assume he is a blubbering idiot only because he is Pierre's son.
Again, I am as guilty as anyone for perpetuating this belief. Not calling anyone out.
