    Guess that means they are about to announce layoffs to the rest of the front office to afford it...

    Well, that owner's firm moral stance just crumbled like so much sand in the wind.

    So Waddell went and got a number from Minnesota and Dundon wrote that number in a check that was already made out.

    He said he doesn’t believe in contracts but if Waddell wanted one he could have one, and now he has one.

    Sure seems like exactly what he said would happen, happened. Just like the Aho deal, just like everything else.

    At least he can supplement his pitiful income with food stamps and bring all the leftover popcorn home for his poor dirt-faced, rib-showin' booger-eatin' children

    In before:

    LOL, what a joke of a franchise. Signing Don Waddell of all people to be their GM for MULTIPLE YEARS! Who, in their right mind, would give that guy a MULTI-YEAR extension.

    Who cares if he gets results? ECF and he just matched a massive OS and is paying to ice a competitive roster. You want cheap there are a lot better examples around the league.

    Before someone comes in to try and disprove this, please note that there was an article on NHL.com last week where Dundon specifically said if Waddell wanted a contract, he would give him one. Like, those were his exact quoted and printed words.

    So much for not wanting a GM on a long term contract.

    It still seems weird that they didn't just sort all of this out earlier. Not bad-weird, just weird-weird.
