In Topic: RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

I'd rather them say, "I want to do everything we can to win as soon as possible." Doesn't that sound better? I don't care that VBK was bankrupt; do you know why? WE GOT TO THE CUP! These owners need to not ask for justification for spending because they do not understand the reasoning for it. If they were funding a grant for an astrophysics experiment, would you expect to have these kinds of benchmarks? And don't go to the article and say that they are asking for timeframes, they gave Lou 2 years when he has had the best track record as any. I see it as 2 years for any coach/GM when it takes longer to build an organization.

Exactly. Do you really want a check with me system with a bunch of financiers when it comes to hockey?

Personally I don't mind it. The owners like statisticians and Lou doesn't. They can and should be a factor in free agency. Plus Lou has made a couple of questionable free agent signings and re-signings lately. I think it's a good last line of defense.

What I got from this, and please correct me if I'm wrong, is that Lou and Shero will not be able to make any big moves without passing it by ownership first. In other words, if Lou and Shero try to trade for Kessel or something they have to check with the owners first.

Yeah better than overpaying in both money and term for an NHL ufa. Nothing really that great available this summer anyway.

As much as I would like them to use a little bit more offensive in their system, I think I would be ok with Boucher. I'd at least like to see what he can do for a couple of years. Maybe his system will help us score more even if it defensive.

I can't watch the video for some reason but apparently the video on this link says Buffalo is very interested in Bylsma...


Boucher to us seems more and more likely.
