Yeeeeup!

Just yesterday he said:

Elliotte Friedman
@FriedgeHNIC

Hearing Dean Lombardi is a serious contender for open job in VAN. We’ll see where it goes.

:scowl:

You were "hearing" that about a guy who is completely unavailable eh?

Piss off Friedman...

We all knew Trevor was inexperienced when he was brought in.

We all knew there was no way he could handle the full-meal-deal prez job... like some presidents.

And we all knew his plate was too full anyway... to deal with all that stuff.

Yours truly was quick to lable him merely a "figurehead"... and I think most agreed.

I get the feeling that over time the title went to his head and he started pushing harder to have a voice.

I get the feeling that his loyalty to some players was a problem, along with his overly nicey-nice ex-union-guy persona.

I also think that he was getting frustrated with being overruled (by the management group) on some decisions.

I think he eventually realized that he simply wasn't a very good president.

Great guy, great captain, great hockey player for a few years, but a pretty crappy president...

You are extremely happy with how things have gone the past 4 years, yet the guy in charge of Hockey Ops gets zero credit for it?

mmmmmmmmk :roll:

I think we all knew Trevor was a figurehead/fingerpuppet. That isn’t news. I believe he got shoved out but I don’t think he’s that busted up about it. He has a ton of other interests and a baby at home. Starting a bit late Trev ?

I think this was only ever going to be a 4 or 5 year deal to insulate Frank and the new GM, Elmer. I don’t think there will be a prez until next season unless a great candidate becomes available. I think Frank will fire Elmer after next season if he doesn’t make the playoffs or crack 90+ points with kids leading the way, not Beagles.

First people threw cotton balls at Trevor. Now they will fire rocks at Elmer. Frank the coward he is will hide and fire Elmer when it gets too hot.

One group understood how to carry out a rebuild and the other one didn’t... watched too many Bob Villa shows. I get a charge out of the people that say Toronto is only better because they landed 2016 1st overall. So they’d have Tkachuk instead of Mathews. I doubt they’d have picked Olli.

At first I was who let this goddamned leaf fan on to the corner, then I scrolled up and saw it was the self flagellating, I hate myself for being a Canuck fan, the blobster ;) lol

Lol carry out a rebuild? How long have they been irrelevant? 2009 they drafted kadri, didn’t make the playoffs til 2017? Horvat drafted 2013, we got 3 years to make the playoffs and be bounced out of the first round to be on par with the laughs. Difference is we were a top team prior to the horvat draft the laughs have sucked forever. I suggest you switch to cheering for the laughs if you can’t see the benningplan.

These teams were in similar shithole spots as of 2014ish. Leaves drafted better and more often regardless of draft position. They signed guys to one year deals and flogged them at the deadline. They don’t spend 4-6 million on third liners or third pairing d men.

One team gets it
