Hextall might have the patience to do something like that but Ed Snider doesn't. I still think some of the reason that Holmgren gets criticized has to do with decisions he made while under pressure from Snider. So on one hand, I think a change probably needs to be made at GM, but on the other hand, I wonder if the bigger issues aren't because of the owner.
