As a GM... hard to say for sure, but I think he'd do well. He is one of the top 2 or 3 GMs in the OHL IMO. And I think being a good GM translates through leagues. Plus he has the NHL connections.

The draft is two weeks away. If you're going to do something, **** or get off the pot.

At the very least there's some great Rychel reaction gifs from the Mem Cup out there somewhere.

This is from earlier today:

Quote:
There’s a couple things going on I can’t really comment on right now,” Rychel said.

The architect of three Memorial Cup championship teams in the last nine years, it would seem natural for Rychel to draw interest, but he admits it would take a lot to pull him out of his current situation.

“For me to leave here, it’s got to be a pretty special gig in the NHL,” Rychel said. “A lot of coaches leave and have success to the NHL, but management’s a little bit different.
Quote:
“There’s a couple of things going on, but obviously I can’t comment on it, but it’s got to be a perfect situation where the ball’s knocked out of the park,” Rychel said. “In the right spot, there’s a lot of teams in the NHL that need help. You look and a lot of my friends are in the NHL now. For me, I had a great career in the NHL. I deal with the NHL guys every day. I won a Stanley Cup. Yeah, I’d love to win another one, but it’s got to be a perfect situation.”

You also mentioned he's on the cutting edge of some new analytics - would you say that's his calling card? Do you think he would keep Bednar on?

Sorry for the 20 questions. I'm just very excited about this potential hire, haha.

This could be a very enticing situation for a GM to come into. A lot of the junk is expiring soon, you have tradeable assets that have been rumoured on the move for the last few seasons, and there's still high end young talent in the system or on the team. If they actually gave him control and let him do as he wanted, I could see that being very interesting for any new GM.

I wouldn't say it is his calling card... I'd say that is winning, no matter how it comes. No idea on Bednar. GMs sometimes like to change their coaches, sometimes not.

Yeah, I made the joke there but I absolutely agree.

Well... Bob Boughner still doesn't have a head coaching job.

Oh yeah but just note that he played 63 games with the Avs before he retired so...

Honestly at this point I pretty much take everything BSN says with a grain of salt. They aren't the greatest source ever. They get some stuff right, but not enough for me to be sold on them.

They are so wishy washy as well. A couple days back they're saying the Avs aren't impressed with Vilardi or Heiskanen. Then yesterday they state they like Heiskanen and he is probably target #1. It's easy to be right when you take both sides of an argument.

I consider them an OK source at best when come to Avs stuff as many of there predictions/statements never seem to come true.

It's possible it's tough to get guys to come here who aren't familiar with Colorado.

Right?
Cuz who wants to live in a place where snow storms drop 5 feet of snow at a time?
(Yes, that was my grandma's perception of Colorado...)

Is there an actual link to this? I haven't listened to all of their podcasts and usually skip the stuff that involves Dater but I don't recall hearing it in the draft podcast.

That's exactly what I think, too. If we have to overpay in extra years to get UFA's, its very possible that it's similar with FO guys with experience. A bad stunt in a badly run org can ruin a reputation/career.

The forgotten time zone with no media coverage, the most travel and just had one of the worst seasons in history. Might be tough to get east coast folks to come. We can hardly get any players in UFA who have only played in the east.

Boughner probably lands in Florida or Buffalo.

It's in the draft thread, not sure there is a link or not. I just read back maybe 7-8 pages and everyone was talking about possibly drafting Liljegren or Mittelstadt because the BSN guys were saying that the Avs weren't overly impressed with Vilardi or Heiskanen.

Basically I was just going off what others were saying they heard. IMO it was pretty clear, based off other posters comments, that it was said by BSN somewhere that we weren't big on those guys. I personally don't care for BSN and think they are very mediocre so I don't follow their articles or podcasts.

Yeah that was Soundwave who initially said that but then admitted that he possibly misread.

Maybe the Avs listened what Billington thought of the draft and are interviewing people to see who thinks the exact opposite to hire

They seem to spout out everything they possibly hear and make connections that sometimes are there. They need to learn to filter through and not jump the gun. You have to filter through the crap to get what they may actually know (or get lucky and guess).
