Tom Lynn named GM? Not sure if it's interim or not though.

Oh, my bad. I'm not saying he deserved to be canned or not; I just didn't see it coming is all.

I expect more heads to roll from now until late September.

Maybe it's time for a change of direction for the whole franchise.

Oh yeah, there'll be more. I thought they were gonna fire him mid-season to be honest. They so desperately need a new, more exciting direction. They have amazing fans there, absolutely amazing. Very similar to a Canadian city. They need to have some fun and actually do something in the playoffs (and get there).

Oh yeah, Minny has had a VERY solid hockey madness for a LONG time, and from what I've been told, like a hockey nut Canuck, they know their dung!!

they deserve a new start and direction. Their facelift (so to speak) ought to fun to watch.

The Sedins and Hossa are going to be blazing hot commodities in the summer. I think Hossa will stay in Detroit, but if any of these three hit the open market - that's one heck of a way to give a facelift to your team.

Perhaps a wholesale change at the top will get the team to the next level.

I mentioned in the Lemaire thread that there's quite a bit of resentment over the fact that no one was brought in when Gaborik went down.

Another case of 'twas time, IMO.

well 10 years and not a great deal of success to show for it, a lot of GM's have never had a leash that long.
