I believe that was munchman33 you're referring to. That guy was an epic bust.

The organization is a mess right now; to try and pin everything on a guy who has been GM for less than a year and where we don't actually know how much authority he has in his role is a bit ridiculous.
You're right, I am assuming that. And perhaps the GM role isn't what it is in other organizations. But if that's the case, it doesn't matter whether I'm referring to Hahn or KW or Jerry Reinsdorf's horse, management needs to go for this to change. If Hahn wasn't calling the shots before, he isn't going to at any point.
