Excellent, some of the safety blankets are being removed. Quinn and Lacroix. Perhaps finally Avs will be forced to actually search for someone who is a god fit instead of taking the guy that is closest by.
Not at all....He got up and walked out of a movie that quite frankly sucked. Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn't cut my losses and walk out as well. We don't have any obligation to stick around and get kicked in the balls season after season as a fan. You are free to go and enjoy watching a team that is trying to win at any time. The Blue Jackets are quickly becoming my second favorite team and well...we'll see how this whole organizational shuffle shakes out. Two moves today, although we'll have to see the replacements before even beginning to judge if they were good or not.
This is all very interesting. Something else has to happen here, you think. There has to be a back story and I don't buy the "Eric is taking the fall for his dad" BS.
Thought Sherman was going to be fired too, and when he wasn't decided to go look elsewhere. That would be my guess. Or maybe he didn't see eye to eye with Sherman and no longer wanted to work with him.
His papa was the president of this entire nepotistic organization, where else could he possibly get a larger role?
Well, if they're bringing in Roy along with an eye towards grooming Sakic, the Lacroix days are numbered. Pierre might be the big fish, but he doesn't call all the shots. It's even possible that his own front office pushed back, assuming he wanted to go another direction. Which is doubtful, knowing the Roy/Lacroix connection. Either way, Eric would find his ladder was missing a few rungs.
Which is all speculation based on nothing, obviously. But I'm going to pretend it's true.
