The Proof is in the pudding.
Unless San Jose wins a Stanley Cup, or atleast gets to a cup final, I don't see how you can hold Doug Wilson in higher regard then you can Mike Gillis. It just makes no sense. Ditto for your extreme praise of the Flyers and Panthers........the proof is in the pudding. Until any of these organizations do better than a Game 7 appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals (along with having achieved practically every single accolade possible outside of a Stanley Cup, like the Gillis regime has), then you simply CANNOT hold any of these guys in higher regard than Mike Gillis.
Sorry Dude, but I'm not seeing where you're coming from on this.
