First of all he is not the GM, this is a fact, he is one voice among many and not the GM.
He likely cares the most, know hockey well and he is a winner, 6 cups does matter to me. I'm tired of people blaming him because they think he runs all the operations, he doesn't. He is now just a scapegoat cause he's been around the longest. Maybe the fact he has drifted to the background is the problem?
Why wouldn't the one guy who has been here through the whole disgusting mess be the first one the finger points to? Who should 7 years of futility be blamed on? Eakins? Renney? Tambo? Joey Moss?
It doesn't matter whether Lowe is the GM. Even if he's not (and that's always been up for speculation), he hires the GM. If a building collapses fingers are getting pointed at architects and engineers, not the guy who was there pounding in the nails. Same applies here. Every poor coaching and GM hire (basically all of them) ends up at the feet of Lowe.
