Rumor:Jim Rutherford and Jason Karmanos Possibly Joining Sabres Hockey Operations


Recommended Posts

 

Could we see another add to the the front office besides Jason Karmanos as AGM? 
 

Friedman mentioned Rick Dudley and Scott Luce as having ties to the Sabres on a Podcast recently. Or is it someone like Jim Rutherford?

Nice! Getting my hopes up. 

Watch Chad have this first, again. 

Honestly quickly becoming my most trusted Sabres twitter source/news breaker

For the record Chad said he considers it good news if the name he’s hearing is true 

I think we could say that about just about anybody that they bring in, eh?

Have we also reported the changes to the scouting department? With the new head of amateur scouting an head of pro scouting (rather than just scouting) - means different person running our draft board this year.

Also rumours of more scouts being recruited

Unless it’s like a business intern from Harborcenter or something

This could be the most important of any and all changes.

I don't see them bringing in anyone other than real hockey people to run the hockey department.  No rookies and no idiots.

I don't know much about Chad. I kind of look at non-mainstream media Twitter accounts with a skunk eye. Who is he and what has he gotten right?

Almost like being a league wide embarrassment finally got the Pegulas to do something. 

I've been saying for weeks that Bettman and or other owners had a long talk with him about fixing this f....ing mess.  My guess is about the time for that stupid 3/5 press conference.  TP was probably told to fix the front office, get some experience in and build a real hockey team.

He has surprisingly gotten a boat load of things right.

Runs a site called Expected Buffalo. Has a weekly Podcast and does have media credentials with the Sabres.
 

Broke the Kahun Trade, was the first to suggest that Krueger was indeed being fired the night before it happened. Was cited on WGR 550 the next morning for being first to report it, and is a frequent guest on WGR to discuss the Sabres on The Howard Simon Show.

Possibilities:

1. Status quo — Terry (de facto president) • Kevyn • Head coach

2. Tweak — Terry (de facto president) • Kevyn • Karmanos • Head coach

3. Tweak-plus — Terry (de facto president) • Kevyn • Senior advisor • Karmanos • Head coach

4. Major tweak — Terry • Hockey president • Kevyn? • Karmanos? • Head coach

5. What needs to happen — Hockey president • GM • Karmanos? • Head coach

I’m hoping/thinking tweak-plus or major tweak. I won’t rule out that number 4 being “what needs to happen”

So the league has to jump in and tell Pegula to fix this mess or otherwise nothing would change?

Not to fix it, but to fix it the right way?

No rookies & no idiots seems like something we would've shot for from the start.... Here's to better luck this time!

I’d be pissed about #1, meh about #2, optimistic about #3, jumping for joy about #4, and back to hockey heaven/multiple cups about #5.
