Why would Kisio be a good choice?? Im not a big PM fan but cant see Kisio more capable. Got to be better choices or we are doomed. I'd rather stay put and give Sutter the GM/Coach job for one year with a game plan and not the one he has been selling.......... regardless of Sutters successes and failures on both sides of the ledgers, will still miss his ability to get a deal done, right wrong or indifferent, luv an active GM vs the others that sit on their as$. Going to get fried for this, oh well..........

He has never dealt with contract negotiations, probably does not know all the ins and outs of the CBA (Lunatik probably knows more), and I think he has too big of man crushes on players and that may impair his judgement into over paying for players in FA. He is an analyst, that does not necessarly qualify him to run the operations of an NHL team. Dunnigan did not exactly do the best job when in charge of the Stamps. I do think there are not alot of guys that know prospects better than him, I think he would make an excellent assistant or head of the scouting.
I think the Flames need a guy with experience at building a winner from the ground up starting from drafting. Nill has learned from the best and has been key cog in what Detroit has done. Thats unfortunate to hear he signed an extension, he may not leave Detroit now because he is a very loyal guy. Although, I don't think Holland would handcuff him if he wanted to leave. If it would possible to get Nill, he would be my first choice. Kisio would also be on my radar, although I think it would be not to good get a guy not from the Alberta area.
