i don't think media/market has anything to do with it. no media is more intense than in Canada, and in Toronto it's Carlyle that handles the players updates, not Nonis, who is invisible unless there's a trade. same with Vancouver, it's always Torts who updates on the status of players, not Gillis. and it's like that for almost every other team, it's the coach that handles the players, not the GM. Philly is just the odd exception. it just seems weird to see Homer do it when it should be Berube. maybe he should spend less time talking to the media and more time trying to fix this mess.
