    Assuming this is the end for Chiarelli, who are the top most logical candidates to replace him?

    We need a new GM, but Yzerman could come here and we would constantly hear moaning and whining all season.

    I hope it’s someone outside of Edmonton / Hockey Canada country club. Unless it’s Steve Yzerman.

    Yzerman is the only slam dunk candidate out there but that’s a pipe dream. Realistically MacT will take over.

    I heard EA has pretty decent AI on their NHL games. Maybe we could make a deal with them?

    This is stupid organization, but they aren't that dumb. It'll be Keith Gretzky

    An actual GM search and interview process instead of handing the job to your buddy.

    Doesn't matter if the rest of the front office remains.

    Yzerman is too much of a classy and professional sort to settle for being Katz and the OBC's patsi. Why would he settle for that after working under Katz's antithesis in Vinik?

    I have a gut feeling it's going to be Howson. Don't know why, I just know it hurts.

    He's under the radar so they might try and sneak him in. Gross.

    Exactly. It'll be given a good PR spin too, because hey, the fans don't want MacT or Lowe, and we know something about our fans.
