Recommended Posts

Pardon my ignorance on the subject, but what's the difference between GM and president of hockey ops?

The last time we tried that we had layers of management without clear RAA (responsibility, accountability, authority). 
 

Adding a VP of Hockey to an existing organization could be tricky.  Starting with one, and having that person hire and define the roles below him is a better approach. 
 

If you added Shero he would take some work from JBot and maybe from Kim.

I would do it if only to add pressure to Botterill - sharing an office with your potential replacement tends to increase performance.

yeah, that sounds like a great way to fix this team

This might sound strange, but I might prefer to do the opposite.

Put Botterill in a role of general overseer, advisor, and CBA/financial guy.  Then hire a proven talent evaluator/team builder as the GM.

In my experience sharing and office with a potential replacement tends to lead to wanting to gtfo.

Not a bad idea in the abstract, and I would be in favor of a hockey czar, but it can't be another Penguins alumnus.

This is from a Penguins Blogger regarding Shero, the final three items sound very familiar.

He also believes that Pegula meddles in both teams, so he will have at least one fan on here.

Any guy who thought bringing in Subban was a good idea... no.

The guy did worse in the Taylor Hall deal than Botterill did in the O'Reilly deal, too.

I'll bite.....how is that possible?  He received  solid prospects, and a first and a third that could become a first if they re-sign Hall...........and no cap dump in return.   All this for a player that is a UFA with no intention of signing there in July. 

That said, not a fan.   Highly questionable picks in 2015 and 2016.   Bogus argument to say their first overalls did not have a franchise type player.   

But he won that trade, and also won the one acquiring Hall in the first place.

Should Buffalo consider trying to get him for President of Hockey Operations?  Could be a good consultant for JBotts.

If we think this guy is a good GM we should hire him to replace Botteril.

Um, not even close.

I'd take Merkley, Schnarr and Bahl over Thompson, Berglund and Sobotka in a heartbeat.
