From the Columbus Dispatch,
A search is expected to begin immediately. Clark and Boyd will likely be granted interviews for the general manager’s position, but both are considered long shots to land the job.
Hitchcock, who did not return phone calls, has told insiders he does not want to be general manager. Among those likely to be considered to replace MacLean as general manager are Dave Taylor, former GM of the Los Angeles Kings; Rick Dudley, assistant general manager of the Chicago Blackhawks; Craig Patrick, former GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins; Steve Tambellini, vice president and assistant general manager of the Vancouver Canucks, and Neil Smith, former general manager of the New York Islanders.
Update 5:40pm ET:
The head of the Columbus Blue Jackets’ parent business will step in as president of the National Hockey League team in the wake of Doug MacLean’s dismissal as president and general manager.
Mike Priest, president of JMAC Inc., the Blue Jackets’ parent company, will become team president and oversee business operations of the club.
