Mike knows as much about every aspect of the sport from management to development to how to deal with the egos of the sport.. He's also an Edmonton guy and he'd work tirelessly to fix this team.. I have full confidence he'd hire a guy like Waddell or another guy from that click and let him bring in a full scouting group. He's from that group of development guys and he'll bring in the right guys.

Until they make bold moves like this, we'll continue to see the stupidity of arrogance.
You have no clue what Waddell did in Atlanta did you?

They appeared in the playoffs ONCE. They didn't even win a game in the playoffs!

Terrible, terrible idea.
