All Things Hockey In The Carolinas

You're My Boy Jimmy!

The longest tenured NHL General Manager (with one team) is still our very own, Jimmy Boy Rutherford. As quick as ownership groups are to put the blame on their GMs when their teams start sucking, you have to respect the fact that J.R. got the benefit of doubt when the Canes finished in last place the year before the lockout (and then was named "Businessperson of the Year" by Triangle Business Journal and won some Cup, or something). Something is bound to happen soon with a trade shake-up and whether in the long haul, the team wins or loses -- trust in JR to do what's right for Carolina.

That being said, will something please happen in Toronto with their coaching/management cluster-muck? I've seen and read enough about their shoddy season WAY too much this week.

All the hullabaloo simply makes this Caniac happy to have the stability of good management, top to bottom.
