I think people forget that Lowe was only a GM for eight years. His tenure finished in 2008. New ownership took over and installed their stooge who could be counted on to follow the playbook.
No hate on my part but his job since 2008 has been President of Hockey operations. He's the name at the top rung of this organization every single year that we've finished worst in the league. He's been in charge of turning this thing around and been involved (to what degree is a valid arguement) with every hockey decision that has been made for over a decade. At what point do we decide he just might not be all that good at his job? When can we say that despite all the set backs and factors that have made it hard to turn this team into a contender we expect some kind of results from this organization? He's gone through one gm and 4 head coaches, when does he get called to task for his failure to hire the right people?
