That's a pretty easy challenge for you to win considering you never really know who is on the market as a GM until they take a job somewhere.
This is true to some extent. However, lets look at some of the people whom some fans wanted as GM of the Wings instead of Holland.
Yzerman - So far, he has done well at Tampa Bay. Their roster this year looks better than last year. Except since he took over, they made the playoffs their first year, missed the second year and third year, and then made it last year only to get swept in the first round. Better than Holland? That remains to be seen.
Ray Shero would be the only guy I would even consider being GM of the Wings.
Nothing screams job accountability like giving an extension to a guy that's gotten consistently worse at his job each year in the last 5 years.
That pizza selling vegetable Ilitch needs to sell the team to someone who still gives a s***.
So you don't believe in job accountability?
Just because someone was good 10 years ago, shouldn't give them a pass to be lazy at their current job.
If his job is to ensure that we have a competitive team that competes for a championship every season, he has achieved his goal.
If you are measuring accountability by championship or nothing, then there are 29 other GMs who are also failing.
