Yeah that's what a lot of people said about him possibly becoming GM. I bet he wishes he could have that one back where he didn't go to Calgary. I don't want him, but it's sad he's gotta go back to the team he owns in juniors now.

The rumors turned out to be right. I remember hearing about him leaving mid season of 08/09. Though the rumors just said he wanted to go home. Not go home, and coach Calgary. It was very parallel to the Parise, and Suter package deal rumors that broke mid season. Team was supposed to be Detroit, and not Minnesota though. The Niedermayer's going to play for the same team was another rumor started that came true. Only they were supposed to go to Vancouver together, and not Anaheim.
