The Fate of One Hockey Franchise In Your Hands
Have you ever wondered what the recipe for success of a hockey franchise is? Who is the person responsible for success or failure of the team? Is it the coach, the general manager or are the players to blame if things go wrong?
Players play the game on the ice, they are organized by the coach and all of them are hired or fired by the general manager. It is the general manager who is the greatest power in a hockey club. The GM can trade the biggest star of the team or fire a coach at any time. It is the GM that rules the hockey franchise and determines the long term direction of the team. Have you ever wondered how it is possible that Detroit Red Wings have been so good consistently over the last 15 years? Or how come the New York Islanders have not been able to win a single playoff series during the same time span despite having the benefits of early draft choices? The answer is management.
Are you a Ken Holland (Red Wings GM) or are you a Mike Milbury (former Islanders GM)? You can now find out if you have what it takes to manage a winning team.
