I think you have to wait and see how this offseason pans out, including the draft and any trades he makes. This was not a good year on many fronts, but he has a lot of assets and I think he deserves a chance to see how he plays them. He gambled on the Kessel trade that the leafs would finish at or near the bottom of the league and he won, so you have to give him that. The upcoming draft and offseason will define PC as a GM one way or the other

yes , we do have to wait and see but keep in mind this yr has been virtually sacrificed if compared to last yr.
He didnt gamble with kess trade he was cornered. Pc himself said he was hoping for a top 10 pick and that it was a deep draft this yr and also mentioned it was a good draft next yr which is not the case,
make no mistake pc got lucky with kess trade, he smart enough to realize that that pick (s)_ will ultimately define his faith.
If he fails with those pix then he will never be a gm again. It is hard to say what the future holds right now, the immediate future i.e next yr and the one following is going to be tough. the reason being dumping the deadweight will be very hard if not impossible.
Chia has clearly made mistakes , mistakes that in the real world , if a pres of a corporation makes he will be fired. My main issue with pc has been his lack of vision . It's one thing trading kess but feeling we would be fine and some player(s) would replace him adequately is absurd. I , along with other fans saw this coming he should have too. fans are not paid obviously, he is the pro not us .
Now, in my estimation our hopes rely greatly on RASK, i have said this for months. If we are going to win a series Rask will have to be huge.
Look, Chia is a smart man he is a harvard grad, but thisdoes not make him a shrewd and brilliant gm. he is learning on the job. This is not acceptable at the nhl level, in the minors , no problem but not at the nhl level. I think that
if we need to point fingers once again , point no further then the jacobs,
