Good stuff Matt, I wonder everyday why Howson is still employed. I guess ownership doesn't care as long as fans still show up.
This part right here is enough reason to hire Fenton.
What has this candidate done that makes him warrant consideration? The Predators have devolved a lot on to Fenton’s shoulders. He manages the professional and amateur scouting staff, and is responsible for Nashville’s selections at each summer’s NHL Entry Draft. Not only that, but Fenton is also responsible for the development of drafted players; in that role he also serves as general manager of the Milwaukee Admirals, Nashville’s AHL affiliate. While Nashville’s development record in all departments is one of the best in the league, they’ve really built a reputation for churning out NHL-calibre defensemen.
