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"?

Capitals fire Oates, part ways with McPhee.

From NHL:



Coach Adam Oates and general manager George McPhee will not be back with the Washington Capitals, the club announced Saturday morning.


McPhee, in the last year of his contract, will not have his contract renewed. Oates, in his second year as coach, was fired. The moves, in response to the club missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in seven years, were announced by owner Ted Leonsis and president Dick Patrick in a release Saturday morning.

The club will discuss the moves in a 4 p.m. press conference Saturday.



I am a little surprised by both being let go.
