What are this candidate’s negatives?
There really aren’t a lot of things to point out.
A closer look at Nashville’s draft record reveals a disturbing willingness to take the odd goaltender early on – such as Chet Pickard, the 18th overall selection in 2008 who finds himself as a subpar ECHL goaltender these days.
Aside from that Nashville has largely been a picture-perfect small market franchise, and Fenton’s work is a big part of the reason why.
Anything else worth noting? I said in the title that Fenton will end up running an NHL team someday, and I have very little doubt that it’s true. His name always pops up in rumours, and he’s been interviewed before – by Minnesota before the wild opted to go with Chuck Fletcher – and given his resume
he’s one of the most qualified guys around.
