The GM and coach relationship is very important. It's probably not the first time that an owner has a personal relationship with the coach and even influences the hiring but it's probably not a good thing.

I see that decision as a GM responsibility which could result in internal discord especially if the coach has the ear of the owner over the GM.

At worse, Melnyk should have done this behind the scene and not gone so public about the coaching position. My favorable opinion of Melnyk has actually lowered.
