Names For The GM Job In Seattle

Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic with a few names,

Ken Holland: The veteran Red Wings GM signed a short-term extension in Detroit which means the timing could work out nicely. He’s a British Columbia native and he’s also the kind of experienced hockey man the NHL likes to see hired as the first GM of an expansion team. The league was supportive of McPhee getting the gig in Vegas. And he brings instant credibility with his Stanley Cup rings. He’s a proven winner with the experience and track record which would make him a rock star hire in Seattle.

Vegas could be a tough act to follow, but KH may be just the man to give it a try.  (I hope!)

It would also be the perfect excuse for him to leave prior to the ending of his contract in Detroit.

There is zero talk about a GM in Seattle at this time. If it’s Kenny, then cool. a year or two of developing a rebuild to go along with his decades of building contending teams should be what a new franchise needs.

Bring on the rivalry with The ‘Couve. Seattleites are getting tired of being whooped by the LumberJacks.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y.
