If you want to argue he was a great coach for that accomplishment you'd have somewhat of an argument although I'd say the team was pretty loaded. As a GM he had only one great draft in his entire career. I don't remember the year but I think he got Kurri, Coffey and maybe Lowe. I forget.
He did not draft Gretzky or Messier, by far the biggest reasons for the team's great run.
His time with the Rangers seems to indicate he stepped in ***** to be where he was in Edmonton when he was there unless you believe his faculties have greatly diminished. I've never heard that before but I suppose the "genius" may have become the village idiot.
