If Draper is the next GM, I don't think I mind it

Yzerman has zero reason to come to Detroit.  Give it up

How many GM's not named Ken Holland spend their entire career's with one team. I'll await your long list, and working for a team for a few years and getting fired to never find another job doesn't count.

Ken is pretty unique in this regard. It's amazing how for granted this organization is taken.

MLB- every (successful) front office is hiring analytical, computer geeks 

NBA- same as MLB

NFL- the greatest football mind of all time is the GM of the Patriots, everyone else is so much below them (even though they did lose the SB because of a funky playcall)

NHL- former players, former players, former players

I think a lot of it has to do with the idea that players are more likely to trust other players. Then they dont see GMs as a suit which makes it easier to build rapport with current players, free agents, draft picks, etc when the guy theyre dealing with has been there before. Gives a guy like Yzerman a huge advantage. Just my two cents.

I don't disagree with you, that's certainly a part of it.

However, you emphasized it's because of rapport with current players/assets. I disagree with you, I think it's firstly because of the rapport they have with other GMs (also former players, vicious cycle, I know). Secondly, with agents. Thirdly, with media. And fourth, with general staff. It's very much still an old boys club in my eyes.

Best GM in the league is most certainly not Ainge, but Bob Myers. the Warriors are ones with the dynasty, not Boston. Although Ainge hires analytical guys around him anyway. How's Michael Jordan doing as GM? Doc Rivers? Vlade? Not so well.

The NHL also has a nepotism problem, on top of that.

 

 

 

So does NFL, MLB, NBA. What’s your point?
