They fail doing the same things over and over.... insanity.
Let's not forget the horrible scouting dept. Bringing Howson back is a plus but they need more of those guys. Guys like Waddell or Mike Barnett who have experience evaluating young talent in similar situations would be a first step. I dread nothings going to change as long as Lowe is involved.

Their biggest problem is there's no organizational guidance. They wing everything. MacT is a hard nose arrogant guy but he's in over his head. They missed out in Jim Nill for sure. Not that he would've come but Jesus. They didn't even try. They need hockey guys. Not former players who are in over their heads. Dudley turned down Buffalo but he's looking for the right team to take over. He'd be a great choice too. Player development guys like he, Waddell and Barnett would make a world of difference.
