From NHL:

 

Jim Rutherford is stepping down as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes and the team has promoted Hall of Fame player Ron Francis to replace him.

In a series of moves announced Monday, the Hurricanes also hired Mike Vellucci as assistant GM and director of hockey operations and promoted Brian Tatum to assistant general manager.

 

 

Stepped down/pushed out? Did Carolina "get the man they wanted"?

When are teams going to stop promoting franchise greats to be their GM's.  It almost never works.  There are only a couple times in recent memory when this has been successful (It remains to be seen whether Sakic pans out). 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Glad to see Vellucci leave. He had some stacked teams and took some risks in the draft and import draft that didn't work out

To me it sounds like they've promoted him to assistent GM

 

Not surprised with Rutherford stepping town, the guy just couldn't create an identity  with this team and overpaid for Semin big big time.

Wonder if Francis will pick up some grit. Carolina is just as soft as we are.

What's the deal with all of the HHoF members getting new management positions with teams?

Why do they call it Ovaltine?
