Jason Botterill from the Penguins. Edmonton boy too.
I just don't feel comfortable with a rookie GM and this group. Recipe for ugly. I was happy with the Krueger hiring, but now I see what a colossal mistake that was. Would rather have Renney back.

A team this young and fragile needs experienced people at the GM and coaching positions to see it through.

Not someone who's going to try to figure things out on the fly.
