Would Snider have the patience for that if he was the GM all those years? He would of fired him and the fanbase would of wanted him fired after the 2nd hell maybe after the first non playoff year.
^^ That

Since '06 the Kings missed the Playoffs three times, afterwards lost twice in the first round and one the Cup last year. Noone in Philly would have accepted the first five seasons the Kings had. The Kings are the Pens of the West, they sucked and built their team through high Draft selections.
