He can be a GM, and i respect that hes one of the best.

I just dont like that fact that he manipulates the other owners through his "ways" and the owners and the league takes to his ideas like they are coming from Lord Stanleys ghost.

He is a very very good business man and does what he does well, but you cant totally blame him. Its the other owners, the NHLPA and the league that put this into play. Its more their fault for agreeing with him on ideas like these and then trapping themselves into multi-season "plans" to see if these ideas work over the longterm.

Problem is Lou has a stronghold on the OWNERS. The GM's are the ones that know hockey and give their two cents about ideas and such. The OWNERS are the bottom line and they control the votes on the major issues whether you or the GMs like it or not. For some reason the Owners seem to side with Lous idea in this case, most likely because it shows them the fiscal results...
