The way I see it, it's just piling on by frustrated NYR fans, who have to have a whipping boy to vent on.
Generally I agree with you but Stu is at best a spare part and our collective spare parts have let the team down and he's probably the least talented of them. Stu needed to improve this year--he hasn't. He was easy to dump.
What I'm not particularly happy about here is the lack of depth at forward and how soft this team is throughout the lineup. Bickel could have been useful if he had taken another step forward. I don't know what he did in his off season but he seemed to get worse this year.
