You may have already heard that Don Maloney is “scheduled to interview for the vacant GM job in Phoenix”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=207229&hubname=nhl.
Bear in mind that the Rangers assistant GM is one of nine candidates, and even if he did get the job, I would have to think the Rangers would try to make it worth his while to stay. The easiest solution would be to have Glen Sather relinquish the GM title since Maloney is believed to do most of the legwork anyway. And that way the big boss can focus on his duties as president, whatever those exactly are.
Granted, the one wrinkle in that plan would be Mark Messier’s interest in the GM position, which as others have already suggested, may not be a small consideration.
In other news, I’m watching the Buffalo-Ottawa game and wondering why someone hasn’t told Brian Engblom that the 80s are over…
