I really hope they don't limit the GM search to candidates with experience as a GM. That takes a LOT of good candidates out of the picture immediately IMO. I really hope he meant someone with experience in a president type role or that someone who's been an asst. GM for quite a while under a great GM or something like that. There's a number of really really good asst. GMs waiting for their first shot IMO. I just don't think it's good to limit your search so much right off the bat like that.
Hmm..listening to Pegs now
1) Discipline.....never thought Murray would be accused of not being disciplined
2) Terry picking next guy at GM for sure
3) Most likely coach too
4) GM going to have experience...
5) Not happy with the organization top to bottom
6) Character...said a couple of times...Murray can't be happy be with that. Football coach having a ton of influence.
BTW, Sully not a knucklehead as of yet...his question was valid.
I also hope it's not Dean Lombardi. I think he's a bit out of touch with where the current NHL game is/has been headed.
And yeah, those Character comments were a bit damning of Tim Murray, and Dan Bylsma (but I definitely took it as more of a shot at a Tim Murray).
I also said yesterday that Terry Pegula didn't hire Tim Murray, and now we know that he definitely didn't hire Dan Bylsma either (as was speculated by some), and that was a factor. Pegula hired LaFontaine. He never planned on having Tim Murray run the whole organization. Now we will get a better idea of Pegula's vision for the Sabres...
I was also very glad to see him address that "Eichel, coach killer" narrative right off the bat. I was really hoping he'd do that. I hate seeing Eichel taking so much blame for this.
