    Appears one of the assistant GM's could be heading to Vegas. Or maybe not. But that's a rumour:

    Oh no, what ever shall we do without the assistant GM who had a hand in acquiring Murray, Bouillon, Armstrong, Parros, Drewiskie, and Scrivens.

    Oh no, poor us.

    Someone actually wants one of our management members? Bad decision.

    With a position opening up, it's a good chance at a promotion for Nick Carriere.

    He only became assistant GM after mid 2014. He wasn't really around in the that role for any of those moves apart from Scrivens I think.

    I can't imagine caring about anyone in this organization not on the ice.

    He was here since day one though.

    In 2014 they had acquired:
    Tom Gilbert - bottom-pairing d-man
    PA Parenteau - soft 3rd liner
    Manny ****ing Malhotra - non NHLer
    Jiri Sekac - non NHLer
    Joey MacDonald - non NHLer
    Mike Weaver - 6th dman at best

    In 2015 they had acquired:
    Jeff Petry - 2nd pairing d-man
    Torrey Mitchell - good 4th liner
    Brian Flynn - 4th liner
    Gonchar - non-NHLer
    Allen - non-NHLer

    I can't go on anymore.

    Mellanby is part of this crew, this Drain Trust.

    Take him and the rest of our management group.

    No compensation necessary.

    This is addition through subtraction.

    Just another bum ex NHLer who has no credentials for the position he's in other than he played with other people in powerful positions.

    Tom Gilbert - bottom-pairing d-man (July 1, 2014)
    PA Parenteau - soft 3rd liner (June 30, 2014)
    Manny ****ing Malhotra - non NHLer (July 1, 2014)
    Jiri Sekac - non NHLer (July 1, 2014)
    Joey MacDonald - non NHLer (July 1, 2014)
    Mike Weaver - 6th dman at best (March 4, 2014)

    He became assistant GM July 30, 2014. Not to mention, MacDonald didn't play in the NHL and Mahotra was used as a fringe 4th liner and Weaver on 3rd pair. Sekac was a free prospect on a ELC.

    I think you're better off blaming MB on his inability to acquire the missing top 6 forward(s) we need more so than Mellanby. The guy is pretty new to the job and wasn't around long enough to be judged.

    On that note, I have no idea why anyone would want him as part of their management group. He may have a good reputation behind the scenes but I wouldn't think he's sought after with his low level of management experience.

    To be fair, I just went off a random list on EOTP.

    Point is, he's been part of this Drain Trust since day one. And I cannot fathom why any organization would want to tap ANY of our moronic front office staff.

    Probably ends up doing a better job in LV than Bergevin has done here.

    Would Montreal be owed any type of compensation (i.e. Draft pick/s) if Las Vegas signs him?

    The compensation we get is one less incompetent person in our management team.

    Hope he takes a bunch of the country club with him.

    Good news, why not take Dudley and Lapointe with you? That would be better news.

    Edit: Yeah Bergevin & Carrière too.. :laugh:

    Bergevin would make a great assistant GM in Vegas.
