Perhaps Maloney...

isn't excited about the prospects of dealing more directly with Dolan if he were to get the job at some point.

But I agree with SBoB...there are 30 positions - he wants one.

The one he is interviewing for is basically being Gretzky's caretaker.Barnett was the previous caretaker and he got axed when the ownership started putting heat on Wayne

This is the Coyotes head coach

Quote:
Yet you can't expect all that with an AWOL coach, and here is the bottom line with Gretzky: A lot of bad things have happened under his nose - bets allegedly placed, contracts egregiously padded, playoffs missed, etc. And a lot of that is because Gretzky has never given this job or this franchise the time or care it deserves.

For instance, Gretzky missed two days of practice before the Coyotes played the Blues on April 3. When asked before the game how St. Louis had successfully changed its style, he didn't have an answer. Most coaches I know would have felt obligated to throw in a tape or two
.

Basically,the head coach will be the GM's boss.They tried that with Barnett

Not surprised that Don would look, but that job he should turn down. Not as dicey as the Islander gig, but still not terribly attractive.

He will gets lots of credit for what should continue to go right with the Rangers. He should wait for a better position to open up. It will in time.

Maloney didn't run the draft last year and won't run it this year either.Gordie Clark is now responsible for the draft selections.After the lockout,he was promoted to the Rangers Head Amateur Scout.He joined the Rangers as a pro scout in 2002 after failing to reach terms with Charles Wang on a new contract.He was Mike Milbury's right hand man on LI(ran their drafts) and also worked for the Bruins as their chief scout.Clark held various positions with Bruins when MM was there

sather would still be there as the go between...really if sather handed over the title of GM to maloney the ONLY thing that would change is the nameplate on their office doors. as far as actual jobs very little would change from what they are doing now and glen & don would still work together the same way.

I also doubt that Mess's comments had any effect on Maloney's decision to interview.

As much as alot of folks think that Mess is loved, I doubt very much he would be considered for the position over Don.

Maloney is to far entrenched in the workings of this franchise and going from him to Mess would set this franchise back years upon years.

Glen needs to take a step back and allow the guys under him to take on more prominant roles in the Org.

Make official what we already think we know.

I've always been a behind the scenes player, Im not a spotlight guy although I could be in it & shine. If I had the choice, I'd rather be the Assiant GM for the NYR than a head GM somewhere else. This is the NYR baby, the flag ship of the leauge. Sure you can be the number one guy for some team out in the dessert & not get the reconization that you would get in NY, but the team is yours, You are free to do what you want to it, it will take on your personality & persona. But being the #2 man for the NYR comes with its perks, people look @ you diffrently.

So Baloney Maloney has been with the NYR for 10 years.What did he do during the
7 years we spent in hockeys Siberia? Silch... The house cleaning in 2004 was strictly
Slats not BM.All I hear Baloney say is that the kids in Hartford weren't ready.
Tell that to Girardi and Callahan. That baloney maloney would not know a prospect
if it bit him in the ass.The sooner he is gone the better.

Dolan thinks the bigger the name the better....I can see Maloney bolting because he knows Messier is the next in line...

Maloney is in a field of about 100 for the Coyotes job...

It's a good statement in how far things have come for the Rangers that guys like Maloney are being looked at by other teams...

I wouldn't be surprised if Pearn or Pelino start being considered around the league...

LMAO! And if we win while he is in Phoenix, we don't care. If we take a single step back from last year, like you said, it is all on Sather.

My 2 cents, Maloney has paid his dues here and deserves the GM slot. If he doesn't get it and leaves it will be a big step backwards for the organization. I think Renney & Maloney think alike and are in zync with each other.

Nice to see Wayne Gretzky is putting all of his energy towards making the Coyotes a better product

Quote:
The Phoenix Coyotes are excited to announce that Head Coach Wayne Gretzky will attend the American Idol rally on Friday to honor Valley native and American Idol contestant Jordin Sparks. Gretzky will present Sparks with a personalized jersey at the rally honoring the singer tomorrow afternoon in Glendale at the Westgate City Center.

There isn't a CHL or AHL playoff series to scout?

"We think (by) the draft is imperative,” Gretzky said. “Not so much in drafting players, but when you’re trying to make deals, you need a guy who knows the hockey land for trading picks for other picks, moving up in the draft or moving down in the draft.”
Quote:
The Coyotes have said their list of candidates is nine deep, but team sources said there could be more. Vancouver assistant GM Steve Tambellini, Anaheim VP of hockey operations Bob Murray and Toronto pro scout Craig Button are believed to be among the names Phoenix would consider

Yes I know Clark was brought in, but wasen't it Maloney that brought him in?

Also heard it from the horses mouth that he indeed(Maloney) is the person in charge at the draft. I'm sure Clark is responsible though for the rankings and whatnot.

I stand corrected. Off the Rangers site it says that in Gordie Clark ran the draft table for the firt time in 06.

I have met Maloney on a few occasions now. We spoke about the draft, and I asked him where was a good place to get "dialed in" on the prospects. He told to get a copy of the Redline Report, and also that they were based out of Lake Placid NY. He also told me that his duties were to run the draft. That was 2 years ago .

Maloney leaving and opening the door for Messier would IMO eventually lead to Renney leaving as well. Do we want Maloney/Renney or Messier and the old boys club? I vote for Maloney & renney they seem to be the real deal, plus they work great together.

Messier would no doubt deal prospects for veterans and contend for a Cup NOW. Three years later it'll be 1997 all over again.

Definitely be cool to have Maloney stay with us, but why exactly would Sather ever step down? He really has no reason to.

No doubt the possible loss of assistant GM Don Maloney to Phoenix as GM would be a blow to the Rangers' front office. But despite all he does, no one should make the mistake of presuming Maloney operates as the club's de facto general manager.

Glen Sather is in charge. He makes the calls. As much blame as he deserved for his pre-lockout decisions, Sather deserves an equal amount of the credit for those that have followed. It couldn't be more wrong to believe he has somehow become a figurehead.

"I like it in the background," Sather told Slap Shots between Games 4 and 5 of the Buffalo series. "I enjoy being able to build things this way."

Maloney is far from gone. Even if he gets an offer, unless the money is overwhelming (and wouldn't the Garden match, anyway?) is it really the wisest career decision to move to the league's most dysfunctional organization
?
http://www.nypost.com/seven/05132007...oks.htm?page=2

The Coyotes lost $30 million this season.They will be paying Michael Barnett and Cliff Fletcher to do nothing.How much more money are they willing to sink into paying another executive when the real power broker is already in the fold?

Anyone else got a hunch that Maloney and Renney aren't 100% eye to eye?

In one second Renney says that the kids needs time, the other Maloney says 6 guys down in HFD could play right away.

I've heard rumors that some Renney supporters in the Rangers organization had started to turn on Renney before the seasons turned. Could have been Dolan, and the Orr comment he made after he wasn't dressed against Philly part I, but I didn't get it that way.

Though, take it for what its worth, just slow news-day speculation.
