If teams are looking to hire him as a GM then we're lucky to be able to keep him around as assistant GM. He's really well respected throughout the league so I'm happy to keep him, good mentor for Bergevin (and I bet he was a major factor in keeping Dudley around.)
Good thing, Bergevin needs some experience around him, Larry Carrierre has been around a while, but I think he was a GM for like maybe 1 year as an interm GM.
Another thing I like, Dudley unlike Bergevin doesn't seem to care about "character" all that much, and really like big players, he was the one that traded E.Kane when he was with ATL, and guys like Akim Aliu, who had questionable character but where big strong players.
And he also more aggressive, I think in his first year as Atl GM, he went out and got Ladd, and Buff, and actually was the one that put big Buff back on D.
