New York Islanders Roundtable: Replacement GM, Is He Out There
Given the current general manager landscape, what direction should the new ownership team of Scott Malkin and Jonathan Ledecky go, if they let go Garth Snow?
They have no choice but to interview the three to four top assistant GM’s in the league and hire the one they feel is ready to take the next step. It’s sounds easy. Because it it simple
There is no Jim Nill type of former general managers waiting by the phone looking to get back into the NHL.In my recent article, I mentioned Scott Mellanby as a possibility to replace Snow.
Mellanby is a former NHL player who’s put in his time in the Montreal Canadiens front office and is very well thought of around the league. There were rumors he was a serious candidate for the GM job in Las Vegas. I would hire a Mellanby type and let him pick the new head coach.
