Oh, to pick the brain of Glen Sather, what with the uninterrupted streak of overwhelming success he has displayed over the last 20 (!) years running the Oilers and Rangers, proving that his early career success was more than just his owner purchasing, and not Glen Sather drafting and developing, the greatest player to ever play the game. The endless list of superstars drafted and developed over the last two decades, not to mention the championship banners accumulated . . .
I'm sure all of us could learn a ton from real GMs. Whether or not they perform their jobs perfectly, they perform them and we don't. We're fans at computers talking about what moves those people should make without any of the context or pressure of the job.
