If we were looking back at the past two years of Kyle Dubas and grading him on his vision, we’d probably be pretty comfortable with giving him high marks. Taking the team in an exciting, skill driven direction is something that Toronto has been afraid to do for too long. Looking at the 90s Red Wings as a model instead of getting hung up on how to bet Bruins is the right choice, even if it at times it has been a frustrating one.
As we mark the two year anniversary from when Kyle Dubas moved into the big office, it’s worth taking a moment to celebrate some of hits and misses, and acknowledge some of his strengths and shortcomings. After all, what else do we have to do?
Year one of GMing for Kyle Dubas was about finding his footing, but year two was always going to be less forgiving and it has been. The fact that we can’t point to any playoff outcomes in Year 2 certainly hinders any ability to draw conclusions. Of course, that’s boring, so we’ll try and draw a few a long the way.
