Sure he did. From those who were on him from the start over his questionable signings and trades, Cole, O'Sullivan, Kotalik, Khabby, Heatley, it goes on and on. And then there were those who didnt like "tanking". They wanted him gone for doing that alone.

You're hate for Mact is hilarious, i agree he's talked up a big game, he's also acknowledged that his level of movement thus far has not lived up to that, any reasonable person would give him at least the summer or even season to live up to it...
Ive seen this movie before. I wont spoil the ending but the guys in the red shirts dont make it back to the Enterprise. Maybe if Mact hadnt already burned through eight freakin years of ineptitude here already, I may be a little more receptive to giving him some time.

if MacT starts signing garbage players to make yp for a lack of movement ill join the MacT hatewagon, until then i can't believe a knowledgeable hockey fan like yourself would not do the same
I presented my views as pertaining to the question at hand (subject of the thread) on page one. I gave him credit where it was due, and gave my opinion of where his shortcomings have been as far as the draft is concerned. I would expect anyone to do the same.

• Leafs acquire David Bolland for 2nd-Round Pick (2013), 4th-Round Pick (2013), and a 4th-Round Pick (2014)
• Hurricanes acquire Andrej Sekera D for Buffalo’s Jamie McBain and a 2nd-Round Pick (2013)
• Devils acquire Cory Schneider for a 1st-Round Pick (2013) from Vancouver
• Islanders acquire Cal Clutterbuck and a 3rd round pick from the Wild for Nino Niederreiter
• Sharks acquire Tyler Kennedy for a 2nd Round Pick (2013)
• Rangers acquire Justin Falk D for Benn Ferriero F from the Wild and a 6th-Round Pick (2014)
Im not the gm, nor should I be. Fact of the matter is Mact made promises that he couldnt deliver.

Perhaps next time he should just keep his mouth shut and let his actions speak for him. The fans dont need to be spoonfed a blow by blow commentary on the state of affairs, they want to see a winning product on the ice. Its his job to make that happen, not mine.

Not true. They were on him from the get go. From Eric Cole to Tom Gilbert, he was harangued at every turn. Not only for the moves he made, but especially for the moves he didnt make. Perhaps it wasnt so easy to make things happen after all?
