Poll Regarding Kevyn Adams


Poll: Was Kevyn Adams being honest about his termination authority?   

43 members have voted

  1. 1. Kevyn Adams said he has authority to fire Ralph Krueger, and final say to make all hockey related decisions in the organization. Do you believe him?

    • Yes, I believe Adams. He can fire Ralph Krueger if he wants and has ultimate hockey related authority in the organization.
    • No, I don't believe Adams. I'll believe he can fire Krueger when I see it.

He needs to ask the boss.  The boss has to pay Ralph whether he coaches or not.  This is not uncommon.

We'll find out if the team doesn't play the way we, and theoretically Adams, want it to play this weekend. 

I'm not sure they even need to win to keep Ralph alive. They just need to show up.

I want someone not named Terry Pegula that has the ability to fire Adams. 

We all agree Ralph needs to go but why am I supposed to buy that Adams should be GM?

I can't take anything they do seriously with them thinking Hutton was an acceptable starter even if they thought maybe it would be 35% of the games.

I still don't understand why people think Ralph has power? He was a JBot hire and he will be let go, just a question of whether or not it's earlier than later but he won't be the coach next year. They will likely attempt to sell us on the usual new coach crap for a new year. Adams hires his coach and if he fails maybe another or maybe him and his coach go, it's a tired tune.

There’s no way Adams *literally* has final say. Pegula is his boss. Adams has final say, sure... if he’s employed.  

The subtext here...I really don’t think this is revealing anything at all about the specific dynamic between the Pegulas and KA. It’s about whether KA has authority over the positions generally considered to be below the GM. That’s a question that needed to be asked and was, whether Terry and Kim have final final say is I think beyond question.

Presumably a Grima Wormtongue situation where Ralph has the delusional owner’s ear (Theoden) and Eomer, played by Adams, who should be in charge, gets beaten aside. 

Seemed plausible to me given Ralph’s rep as a talker, at least until Eomer’s comments today.

If Adams didn’t have the power to fire Krueger, it more likely would just be a reflection of a flat management structure.

But I wanted to use a Lord of the Rings analogy, so.

To me, the issue I have with Adams is not just with the coach, but the players.  Do I want him to have the power to fire the coach? sure, but what about moving players, even 'star' players if you have a good offer on the table. 

This team doesn't just need a coach, it needs a LOT of player turnover, and not just at the bottom.
