We’re going to continue draft weekend coverage in earnest here at FN with profiles of Byron and Butler coming up in the next few days, as well as some more personal anecdotes from the excursion to Minnesota.
For now, there’s been some minor Flames news broken on twitter today. FAN960’s Dean Molberg tweeted that the Flames terminated Duane Sutter today. Duane was the director of player personnel and is probably a casualty of Feaster deciding to sweep the vestiages of the prior regime out of the organization, which was probably inevitable. Ron Sutter was at the draft this weekend and remains a scout for the org, but I’d say his days are probably numbered as well, simply as a matter of course. I’d say Brent Sutter is the only one of the clan who is safe from the axe, at least in the short-term.
Also, HNIC’s Elliote Friedman tweeted tonight that Bruins scout (and former NBA GM??) John Weisbrod is in line to become Calgary’s next assist general manager. I don’t know what connection Weisbrod has to Feaster nor what his qualifications are outside of a few years exeprience in the NHL as a scout, but I’m sure more information will come out if/when the hiring is confirmed.
