By the sounds of the conference call though, Mellanby made it seem that he would be a consultant for all player personnel decisions, which probably means from both the professional and amateur ranks.
That's interesting. Nonis in his last press conference gave a huge vote of confidence to Lorne Henning saying he's an "outstanding individual and a great scout." He also stated part of the reason he has Henning is because he has experience with winning organizations (won 2 Cups as a player and 2 as a coach I think) Mellanby replacing him would not have such winning experience, and actually has a reputation for NOT winning if I'm not mistaken.
Not really jumping to conclusions here, just saying is all.
