It would depress me to no end to think a guy with zero front office experience who was a fan favorite as a player won out over an experienced, highly intelligent, proven front office guy. It's almost the polar opposite of how I'd want this team run.
I think Neely has some cache with the owner though. Enough so that he's able to publicly comment about money and spending without ramification.
Look, this isn't the Columbus Blue Jackets. If PC was let go there would be a line of guys with resumes in hand waiting to get the gig here.
Cam has done a decent job here. His presence brings accountability to the front office. You have to be from another planet or Montreal to not respect Cam Neely. That type of respect and leadership filters down through the organization.
