Yeah, I mean the GM that signed Lindros to a bone-headed games played bonus laiden contract.

I mean the GM that traded Mike York for Tom Poti

I mean the GM that selected Jessiman over Dustin Brown, Brent Seabrook, Zach Parise, Ryan Getzlaf, Brent Burns, Ryan Kesler, Mike Richards. Eric Frickin Fehr, Corey Perry.

I mean the guy that drafted Bobby Sanguinetti over Claude Giroux, Patrick Berglund and Nick Foligno.

The GM that signed Drury to a god awful contract, Gomez to a god awful contract (finding a sucker to take the contract aside) Redden to a god awful contract when he was in clear decline for 3 years prior to coming here.

as for trades, while we are not winning and losing because he's not here. He provides a level of jam this team is missing. Korpikoski for Lisin was a doosy.

Yeah, that's the GM I'm talking about.

None of that above mentions advanding past the first round exactly 3 times during his 13 year tenure.
