19. The Rangers killed rumours last week that Glen Sather was going to drop the GM title (be president only) with Doug Risebrough taking over. Risebrough is somewhat in demand. He's a serious contender for the Tampa job and, if San Jose makes a change, he has a connection with president and CEO Greg Jamison.

20. Wherever Risebrough goes, Tom Thompson, his right-hand man from Minnesota, is going too.

Risebrough and Thompson have a long time connection. They were together in Calgary. When Risebrough worked for Slats in Edmonton,Thompson was an Oiler scout. When Risebrough went to the Wild,Thompson joined him.

Thompson, 54 (6/24/53), joined the Wild staff after spending two years (1997-99) as a Scout for the Edmonton Oilers. His scouting duties with the Oilers covered college, major junior and international hockey. Prior to his tenure with Edmonton, he served 12 years with the Calgary Flames, the last three years (1994-97) as the Director of Amateur Scouting after serving nine years (1985-94) as a Scout for the organization.
