do you think Trevor Timmins could leave for a better job?

I thought about it while answering to another thread.

It's clear that Timmins is one of the best around here. If not THE best.

Do you think that there's a chance that, in the next 5 years, Timmins gets a job as a GM of a team? Or do you think he likes his hob as head scout so much that he wouldn't be interested in a GM job?

I just imagine what it would be if he was offered a contract to become the GM of the Maple Leafs. Ouch.

I say, give Timmins a 20-years contract and keep him forever. lol

There is such a thing as The Peter Principle: you're promoted to your level of incompetency. Maybe Timmons would make a lousy GM. I'm not saying he would be but there's more to the GM job than picking junior hockey players.

My initial reaction to the Frank Jay signing earlier in the month was that it was a preemptive strike to blanket us against losing Timmins to rich suitors, whether it would be a GM or another scouting spot I can't say. Though I'd vouch for the latter at this point in time.

How long will Gainey be GM.... I don't know how much longer he wants to do the job... I think he wants one cup and then he's out.

I think Timmins is the successor.

There's going to be a lot of miffed unemployed GM's if Timmins succeeds Gainey, i can tell you that!
Andre Savard for one.

Well he'll leave one day but I'd be surprised if his next promotion is GM and I dont really see him leaving for another scouting job, maybe assistant GM somewhere. One thing for sure it's gonna be a big loss when he leaves

Well two minds are better than one and Gainey, seeing that we are progressing fast and that the draft picks are going to be lower, probably tought that adding Frank Jay would help us maximise the return on those lower draft picks.

Why not sign him anyway? Its better having Jay with us than him going to the Leafs!

I was thinking they were grooming Julien Brisebois for that but you could be right

Julien Brisebois is not a "hockey" man. He is probably very good at crunching numbers and studying all the tiny sub sections in the CBA.

Trevor's plan definitely includes moving up the ladder of command.. I just dont know if he even knows where..or when... I just dont think he will rule anything out, I do know that he is on the road alot and everyone gets tired eventually of living out of hotels for 10 months of the year.

Timmins is very young and makes good decisions... I would like to see him replace Gainey in the future.

Short of becoming a GM (which I don't think he will be) there's nowhere higher up the chain for Timmins to go. As a professional amateur scout (which is what he realistically is) being Director of Player Recruitment and Development is about as high as he goes. He could succeed Julien Brisebois as VP Hockey Operations, but it is pretty clear that he loves interacting and working with our young prospects, something that would be less emphasized in a different position.

Not my first choice, though.

Julien Brisebois is the one being groomed, Timmins could be promoted in Gauthier's spot at the same time.

Frank Jay is just here to end his career, for probably 2-3 more years top. I dont think hes part of any plan, just a free agent that Timmins was very interested in.

I noted on the Habs management page that Julien spells his surname strangely. It's BriseBois, not Brisebois.

edit: I'm not trying to correct you, just pointing out something I thought was strange/unusual.

I don't think I'm that concerned. He's very invested in his players that he drafts. You can tell he's excited about each and every one, he'll be here for a long time as he'll want to watch the fruits of his labour develop and become what he always believed they could become.
