Well since you ask. Bob Gainey's legacy is the creation of a team that is small, weak, and unsuccessful.
His track record for drafting could be undoubtedly outperformed by a computer randomizing routine.
His strategy of succession and development - if and when a player develops, is lose them at the earliest possible time, then use expensive draft picks to replace them in one year fix scenarios.
Stand by your overrated goalie, call him a thoroughbred and glare at people who don't bow to him. Fire any and all coaches who can't mask the odour of the bad untimely goals he lets in.
Replace a 14 year captain with a 7.3 million dollar albatross.
Stand by the wrong players, trade away the wrong players. Let the wrong players walk away from the club.
Hires the guy that will make the one colossal bad trade that might actually make people forget about your numerous colossal bad trades.
In all honesty this is a great gig for Gainey. No accountability, and he gets to be paid to consult on a mess he created.
