    For my money, I'd flip the two on the top. We all saw what Kenny could do with the unlimited budget. That's what Dombrowski has. Now when there is a cap in NHL Holland still manages to have a competitive team that was one period away from conference finals and possibly more. Their minor league team won their cup and has a group of strong young players coming up.

    It's Ken Holland and it isn't even close.

    Three Stanley Cups as GM and one more as assistant GM....hard to argue that one.

    Holland is #1 in the NHL...........

    Dombrowski may be top 10 in Baseball.........

    Dumars and Mayhew are in the lower half in their respective leagues....

    Holland, and it isn't even close. 22 straight playoff seasons, and several Stanley Cups.
    Dombrowski second, and it isn't even close. Started with a barren roster and has built
    a very competitive team. Playoff caliber and getting better each year. Just needs a WS title
    (he already has one) with Detroit.
    Dumars and Mayhew can duke it out for 3rd/4th.

    Dumars has a championship and several ECF showings, but the ownership change has taken a lot of wind out of his sails. Comeback is imminent?

    Mayhew started from scratch (or below scratch) and has been saddled with the worst ownership in professional sports. He's trying to dig out of a deep hole, and so far has barely gotten his head above ground. He's fighting 50 years of futility.
    He got to 10-6 two years ago with several miracle wins. Last year the miracle wins turned into miracle losses and a 4-12 year. The 10-6 should probably have been 8-8 or 7-9. The 4-12 should probably have been 6-10 or 7-9. This year 7-9 or 8-8 looks possible, if not satisfying. Anything above that would be cause for rejoicing.
