I wouldn't be surprised if TT is canned immediately following the draft. Fletcher wasn't very happy with the Leddy/UM comments. Hopefully that will turn out to be the final straw.
If that was the case, then the second part of your comment pretty much just put the stamp on the envelope that our organization has an extremely difficult time with drafting outside of the 1st round. If we are not going to do the Washington/Chicago/Pittsburgh route of getting high Top 10 picks, then we need to be more like Detroit/New York in drafting outside of the 1st round.

TT def. needs to be fired though, and like I've said...I'm pretty sure you won't see us getting them at 18 before they have played at another level outside of prep hockey. Fletcher is going to be gun shy about it and rightfully so.

Depending on what Fletcher believes we need, he will get it. I have faith in the guy. I just don't want their to be hopes and dreams that Bouchard is coming back though either.
