Well that was quick. Or was it?
Shawn Simpson of TSN 1200 reported earlier today that Joe Nieuwendyk is no longer a candidate for the General Manager position in Calgary and that Dave Poulin - current Vice President of Hockey Operations in Toronto - has landed the gig.
Joe Nieuwendyk is out!!! Look for Dave Poulin to be the next GM, of the Cgy Flames!!! @TSN1200— Shawn Simpson (@TSNSimmer) December 13, 2013
Well, there you go. It all seems a little too fast to me, though. It hasn't even been 48 hours since Brian Burke stood at the podium and stressed the importance of getting the right guy for this job. Did he really he have the time to conduct proper interviews with the candidates on his list? I guess we'll find out soon, but I'd take this report with a grain of salt.
But, if Dave Poulin really is the guy, are you happy with the choice?
