Marty would be a HORRIFIC GM. BEYOND Horrific.
What are you imagining based on his past hockey and life experiences? I can list off the pros and cons - but:
Basically the fatal flaw is his self indulgence. That will ABSOLUTELY lead to poor decision making. He will NEVER get it under control.
I just dont know Oates well enough but it's an interesting thought actually. He seems to have a very cool head and a clear (for my tastes) correct vision. He has some communication stuff to learn... and i canNOT tell what it is -- drives me absolutely insane. Thanks for the ^&%ing muzzles Lou -- how can I help you then HMMM????
Hey -- just a quick note -- I figured out Lou's lie tell --- he stops listening. He's committed to the lie and he stops really listening - he's for sure learned: to listen after the fact, is to open yourself up to inconsistencies in reasoning -- therefore getting caught in a lie. Once he's committed to that lie he can no longer apply logic or reasoning without acknowledging the betrayal of trust -- and then you've you got your strawman ready built and an end to productivity . Anyhow -- It's very obvious. He's got a liar face that he makes and kind of an innocent shirking of responsibility face. It's very annoying -- and the reason is that he's NOT listening -- you're SOL and it's infuriating. Yeah -- I just needed to see it once and it stuck with me - you know I'm right... I'm just right about that stuff
