Francis 'promoted' to President. New GM will report straight to owner. (yay, owner who thinks he knows hockey, this will work, right????)

Hope the new GM can find a goalie and a top line centre. I'm thinking Freddy Andersen and Eric Staal might have been worth keeping around

Ugh, the owner sounded reasonable for the first couple months...

When I first saw the news, wasnít sure if this was a promotion or a demotion. I guess itís a promotion in title but essentially being fired from the GM position?

Oh ya, def fired.
New GM reporting directly to the owner means Francis' responsibility will be merely to be eye candy for those with nostalgia. Little to no say in hockey. Probably was hoping Francis would walk away. My best guess is that he'll be leaving soon anyway.

I can live with Francis being let go. I would have practiced a touch more patience, but ok, if you got a good plan in place for who will replace him and why he/she is better for the job.
But so far it sounds like he'll be hiring a GM who has to go through the owner to make hockey moves, and thats not going to work in most cases.

I had high hopes for the new owner, but this looks bad so far.

Those of you in the AHL, I will be using you guys as references, thanks!
(And maybe some of you from the FCHL who can recall 2007, but please dont mention 2010-2016, thanks!)

Im OG yo!
oh, and that was the year I won it all.

(See John, what that means is I made it to the playoffs, and then I won every round, and I was declared the Champion of the whole league. Forgot you may not be familiar with that final process) :)
