And by the way, the missing of the playoffs just before DT took over and as he left are completely different. Does the term "1500 man-games lost" over 4 years have no meaning for you? They just weren't the role players either. They were the guns. If you want to cry in your beer do it for the right reason, bad luck not sabotage or stupidity.

DT made trades for players with a history of injuries including Miller, Deadmarsh, Allison and Palffy. He traded youth for a guy with an injured knee in Brent Sopel. He then refused to fire a coach who demanded star players grind the corners where they take a beating. Bad luck? Does luck even exist? The facts are that DT led the team nowhere, the team is in shambles, there are no saviors coming, therefore he was a bad GM.
