I like Pierre's knowledge of prospects, but I think he has too much of an obsession with them. I could see him trading a good young player (say 22) for more picks due to a can't miss prospect in the 2nd round.
I read it, and still think it is dumb. Why even bother, no need to bring the collective group down with negative threads about non-existent hypothetical GM's after our new GM hypothetically fails.
Its naive to think that long term goals/ plans and objectives arent already being discussed amongst ownership. This situation has a stench to it, hens why many believe there is more to burke's firing then what meets the eye. Nonis found out the morning of and was thrusted into the position. He will be under intense scrutiny (as was Burke) throughout his tenure. There was no time in between managers, no interim, no interview period, no preparations, it was an impulsive decision. He was given a 3 year contract which is 3 years shorter then the one given to Brian Burke when he was taking over.
Some see what they want to see and others smell the roses. Not everything is peaches and crème. This isn’t the thread for you my friend
