Only time will tell. Amateur scouting is definitely a key to any team's success, and Tyler's a likable enough guy. Best of luck to him, I hope it works out for both sides.

I think there was a much safer route that Howson could've gone down than promoting Wright. (I.E.: someone with more experience in this role or someone who's been a scout for years or someone who's been working closely with the draft for years)

On a lighter note, at least the Dispatch boys won't cry fowl that yet another former CBJ player didn't get a chance to shine with the front office/coaching staff with this team....

So far, Wright's position with the club has kept him somewhat out of the lime-light. As he moves up the ladder, his qualifications will become more apparent, good or bad. Right now, we can only hope that he is one of the NHL's rising front office stars.

I have no doubt he can be very successful.

like it says in the article...this is pretty much just a paper promotion...he's just been added more responsibility while he's on his road trips visiting jackets prospects

I cannot say whether it is good move or not. But it is pity that Rick Dudley does not have this spot.

I can get behind that.

I thought the more INTERESTING part of the article was the creation of a "Senior Advisor" to the President.

Are they making this for Ken Hitchcock?

Would not surprise me.

Just you wait until he starts interviewing for GM jobs.

I certainly hope so. He's forgotten more about the game than half this board knows, and his only serious fault is his (in)ability to complete the development of prospects on-the-fly. He therefore represents a tremendous potential resource for this team, and I want him!

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

Maybe that's part of his problem?

I would much prefer a proven, qualified candidate. Tyler is young and inexperienced and this is such a key aspect of the team's success down the road.
