That future should entail one season on his buddy Jeff Skinner's RW 

I'm pretty sure one of the reasons Skinner was traded was how much him and Williams didn't get along

I thought so, "buddy" was meant to be sarcastic

Tom Dundon, Chief Executive Officer, Owner and Governor of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced the team has re-signed President and General Manager Don Waddell to a multi-year contract extension.

...Waddell link

 

This whole process has been incredibly odd.  Basically doesn't want to give any front office types a contract and wants them all to be considered at-will.  I had heard a story suggesting that league rules require a GM to be under contract, but google isn't helping me verify that right now (not as easy as searching the CBA for player rules).

I get the feeling that Waddell has a friend in the Minnesota front office.  That friend gave him a token interview in order to force Dundon's hand a bit.

Horrible GM, would have loved to have seen  him in Minny.

That's exactly why I think someone in Minnesota was doing him a favor.  They weren't the slightest bit interested in him, but it's no coincidence that he finally got a contract right after they talked.

Marner is worth as much as AM if you ask me...

Agreed.  But he's asking for more, might actually get it, and if they match will have way more than ideal locked up in their 3 top forwards.  1 of whom will soon be long in the tooth.

Really hope that offer sheet becomes real (while hoping that the schadenfreude doesn't come back to bite the Sabres in the rear end in 2 years) and that TO matches.

Tavares will easily be elite as long as Matthews is under contract. At most it’ll be in his final year when he slows down.

Wow, that's awful. 

Ethanol table top fire place? That seems extremely unsafe. That's not something you just ignore the safety instructions on.

It was one of these types ...

And they were seated around an outdoor table when it happened. Not indoors. 

Such a sad tragedy ...

The jersey guarantees a loss.

Shocking that a team sort of run by Don Waddell might be a mess.

I think it's more so the owner to be honest, but I'm sure Waddell doesn't help at all

Looks like Ronnie Francis got out just in time.

Waddell only has the job because of the owner.
