Also wondering what the update on the new GM is and when they will be hiring one. It still has not been announced. Unless Director of Player Personnel is the new term for "GM".
Highly doubtful they name a "GM" this year and if they do name one it will just be another title for Joey Burke

I think Bill and Denise have been grooming their sons for this for a long time. Whether this was the timing that Bill and Denise had in mind is at this point a mystery. But I do think the Burke Boys were indeed the succession plan.

They were definitely going to take over at some point but I don't know if it was the plan for them to take over this soon that's why I think Joey is the only one of the sons who has taken over one of the two jobs Marty had

What questions do you want the media to ask. Last year they asked Marty why the team was playing so bad and he said because they won't come mentally prepared and they were not a good team mentally. But people on here speculated that Marty had lost control of the room or that a player had took control of the room and it was causing the team to lose. But there was no proof any of that occurred. Just people spreading rumours on this forum and no reputable reporter is going to ask questions because someone on this forum suggests something with no proof.

Well I'm not a reporter but if a GM said players weren't mentally prepared to play lots of questions come to my brain:
1) How many players?
2) What are you doing about it?
3) Who is responsible?
4) Can you fix it? How?

You are assuming these questions weren't asked simply because you dont have an answer to them. Do you think a coach cant answer these without actually saying anything?

1 - We are a team, its a team problem
2 - We are changing how we practice and handle ourselves before games.
3 - We are all responsible
4 - I told you that in the 2nd question...

Are you saying a hockey coach is better at dodging an issue than the media is at probing it?

pup96, when you get older you will discover you will find little truth in print media.

Fishfan speeks the truth, right here on this forum. you can't get anymore real than that.
