I suspect Lombardi's availability doomed Timmy. If Murray had better lottery ball skills he'd probably still have the job but when you've got a guy on the market who has turned a rebuilding team into a multiple Cup winner, it's hard to not want to go with the proven winner.

Le Droit's Sens reporter says that there is too much bad blood with Dorion for Timmy to come back to Ottawa.

I just don't see how you bring another guy in that was a GM and wants to be a GM. Doesn't really make sense. I'd like to see Randy Lee given the Cyril Leeder treatment and booted to the curb, but Tim doesn't seem like the guy that likes to answer to anyone and play the role of assistant. Which is maybe part of why he's unemployed today.

Would we want Alfredsson as the GM of this club someday? No doubt he should and will continue to be involved in the organization but the growing trend around the league now is former players getting involved in higher management positions. Boston, Vancouver and now LA. It's seemed to back fire a bit in Boston with Neely and the big boys, and I still wonder if Trevor Linden has a fucking clue about what he's doing.

Next thing you know we will have Chris Neil as the next senior advisor of hockey operations. :stare:

While I think Alfie will be a fine front office guy, I prefer that the GM comes from a scouting background.

I wonder about so many players who were involved in getting the 2005 lockout resolved being rewarded with high level executive positions in the NHL. Was there a bit of quid pro quo going on back in the day?

Did I miss this, or was this actually never reported before?

The Sabres also fired Director of Amateur Scouting Greg Royce and Director of Pro Scouting Rob Murphy, both former scouts that Tim Murray took from Ottawa.

No, I don't think it has.

I'm thinking Tim's firing is a bit premature.

Did Toronto make the playoffs? I haven't heard anything about that on Sportsnet or TSN.
