Says -"We blew it up, we're in year 3 of that plan, are you trying to tell me you're impatient after 3 years?' (Considering you had 3 straight 1st overall picks and haven't even shown a lick of improvement? i'd be annoyed too) for example, Pittsburgh turned it around after 3 first overall picks, Chicago got back in the picture after 2 high picks.

- Claims because he and MacTavish both have multiple stanley cup rings, they know what it takes to win (Despite not admitting both of them rode the coattails of one of the greatest players in history to get those rings) and that whole "i have rings therefore i am a perfect candidate to run a team" doesn't fly, for reference please see Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats.

I kinda wish Burke would have fought Lowe like he wanted to, would pay to see that after this debacle
Lowe made some great moves to help us into the finals. Mac T wasn't coaching that team to the finals without Pronger and Roloson.
The 3 years without improvement thing is why the GM got fired. Kind of the point of why we're talking about it.
Relevant or not they didn't just ride Gretzky's coat tails, unless they somehow rode his coat tails while he was on a different team. Twice.
