I feel the same way. I surely wouldn't kick PL out of my bed for eating animal crackers (uh...work with me here, folks). He obviously has a good eye for talent or knows how to work with the people who do have a good eye for talent, and he's a good negotiator. Players want to play in Denver.
However, I feel he gets too much credit for moves he's made. He benefitted from one of the greatest inheritences in NHL history. Just as Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur are sure-fire Hall-of-Fame players because of what they did on the ice, one could also argue that they never played on bad teams. I suppose my point is that a universal agreement about one person's greatness is not only due to ability, but also timing.
I also realize this doesn't have much to do with the topic in general, but while you're working with me on the animal cracker thing...
