Kings Gameday: The Quick Fix


Next Game


 

From this editorial about the Greeen Bay Packers and their general manager:

Smith is a workaholic. He’s a hands-on general manager. He lives to scout and he loves what the Packers have done in developing a roster of young players that’ve come through the draft. The Packers’ way is his way. All he needs is time.

"It’s a good model," Smith said.

No, it’s the model. It’s how all teams should do it, as evidenced by the fact that both teams in this year’s Super Bowl adhere to the model.

So why won’t there be a rush to do the same?

Because doing it the Packers’ way means having to stick with that way in losing seasons. It means not firing the head coach after a couple of non-playoff years. It means standing firm in the face of fan criticism. It means being so committed to the model that you never crack and go for the quick fix.

"It’s a year-to-year league," Smith said.

Not for the good teams.

Prediction: Kings win, 4-3. The Kings trade Derek Forbort & Kyle Clifford for Chris Drury's intangibles.
