If we are fortunate enough in that ownership decides that Regier is out as GM who are the candidates to replace him? We have an owner with pockets as deep as any in the league, no salary cap when it comes to management talent. I have Rick Dudley, Brian Burke, Ted Nolan, Jason Botterill - I'm sure there are some other Assistant GM's in the league who have good reputations but unlike other sports you really don't hear much about up and coming management talent. There's also the ex-player route - i.e. Yzerman. Agent route i.e. Gillis. Scouts/Player Personell. CHL GMs. I've always liked Dudley, has a reputation as a great talent evaluator, and is a total rink rat who is somewhere watching a hockey game live every night of the week. Ex-Sabre. Burke did a great job in Toronto, that's his team on the ice in Toronto.
