The entire article is an amazing read about his whole story, and of course the injury which forced his retirement. Interested in that I haven't seen this confirmed by anyone else in the organization.
Good read.. but article's on ESPN.com. Buccigross probably confusing CBJ with another team

It is a good article. You put the , but I wondered if he wrote CBJ but meant Predators. I don't see what the connection would be to Jarmo or Davidson that would result in him getting a scout position right away. Jarmo seems to be bringing in a bunch of guys he's familiar with who have a good deal of experience.

You say "now" as though it's changed recently or something.

I think of it as awesome simply because it means he has a productive job. Whether or not he adds value to the Jackets (or whatever team) is at this point a secondary consideration, and I think it extremely unlikely that he could take value away.

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

#CBJ GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Geoffrion: "I've spoken at length with him a few times, and he really has a great read on today's players."

More Kekalainen: "It's a real advantage when you can deal w people who have actually play against these guys, not just watched them."

Boumedienne in Finnish tabloid:
http://www.iltasanomat.fi/nhl/art-1288593783410.html

His contract is 2 years and mainly will follow Swedish and Finnish leagues and even during his hockey career he was known as a "hockey freak".

"I love hockey. I watched about 150 games during season" (Not including his own games).

"I know lots of hockey people and I have plenty of connections which will help me to get more knowledge about players backgrounds"
