John Ferguson: Potential?

I was watching the Score last night and the tubby dude from Winnipeg said that he thinks John Ferguson Jr. will be the best GM in the league.

That really got me excited.

It's nice to see a fresh, young GM who can relate to prospects and young players... especially since he's had a background of scouting.

His reported exhaustive knowledge of the CBA is something that I think will be invaluable. He reminds me of an IBM VP of Sales-type. Not saying that is good or bad, just is.

I like the fact that he is expected to stay around for 10 years because continuity is key.

I like his work ethic and apparent attention to detail.

I like his intensity.

I like the fact that he appears to be a political animal which will be key to his success at MLSE.

He seems to have the ingredients to succeed.

The position is stable.

Let's watch.

He's done well enough so far, and I've felt reasonably happy with what he has (and hasn't) done but I'll wait awhile before passing judgement on his abilities as a GM or his future in said position.

Welcome to Leafs Nation, leave your common sense at the door.
