With the current ownership, I don't think anyone has to worry about that. Tampa may be the only team whose ownership is worse than Atlanta's.

Considering Tampa was just sold late this season, not sure how you can say they suck. You can say that the Len Barrie ownership group sucked but not the current group. I think the current group is doing the right thing, dump the dead weight, in Atlanta's case, Waddell.

I really do not know who I want as GM....I just know who I do not want.

As stated before, if a change is going to happen it needs to happen quickly.

I communicated with James Mirtle (who has also tweeted about change in Atlanta) and we each have a different source for the “Dudley next GM” news.
I really don't know much about who James Mirtle is though...

He was one of the top hockey bloggers on SBNation before he took the job at Globe & Mail this year. But no, not a big rumor guy as far as I know.

I didn't realize that was finalized. It certainly explains them hosing out the stables.

That deal was done in February...

...and was approved by the NHL in March.

Curious if Dudley does get GM and if there is the expected turnover in NY if he hires his long-time friend and former assistant John Tortorella would be a candidate....

I can't see why any of you guys would be happy about this. The consensus amongst Panthers fans is that Rick Dudley had set back our franchise about 10 years in rebuilding with his handling of trades and drafts.

Interesting. From an outsider's point of view, I always thought Keenan was more to blame.

Well, considering that with Waddell we've gone nowhere, can Dudley really be that much worse?

I'd still rather keep Dudley in the position he's in, and bring in a new GM altogether.

dudley is one of the best talent evaluators around but when it comes to negotiating trades and deals he is not nearly as proficient. that's why i'd like things to stay how they are. we seem to be on the right track right now, so i don't see why we would change it.

the coaching is the problem right now, not the gming.

The GM not the problem?? HA! He should of been fired years ago and now he's finishing a season in which he missed the playoffs AGAIN with the highest payroll in team history and lost the star and face of the franchise because of constant sucking. Yeah... He's a problem.

The longer we hear nothing, the more I am to believe nothing will happen.

I think perhaps you are missing the point that Rhodes is making.

Out of curiosity, why are so many people so ready to have Yzerman as their team's GM? Is it just because Stevie Y is Stevie Y?

BTW...

Props to Falconer for calling this one.

Maybe he can share rumors on a more frequent basis?

Because of his success with Team Canada.

I think he got out GMed by Burke and Team USA as far as team building goes, can't deny that the lesser-skilled team performed almost on par with Team Canada due to chemistry and hard work.

Its team Canada. You could pick names out of a hat and still compete.

I'm in agreement with that.

I'm not saying his success there should mean more than anything else, but to me that's what most of the hype he has generates from.

Always really liked Dudley

Apparently Doug Maclean says most likely Hawks assistant John Torchetti will be named head coach after the PO's

Am I missing a few seasons? Has Torchetti ever coached a complete season in the NHL?
