    He has his work cut out for him. Say goodbye to Carlyle.

    Actually, they could use him on the ice. Hopefully for them his hockey decisions make more sense than his "pull a rabbit out of a hat" style of giving out suspensions. Wanted the B's to draft him back in 87 but he went a pick ahead of ours (Wesley)

    I'd heard that on THE FAN 590's Primetime Sports this afternoon, kel. The panel suggested he'd be a link between big cheese Liewike and Nonis. Seems to be the thing to do lately with Neely, LaFontaine and now Linden. Leafs also had Ken Dryden several years ago. At least then they made the playoffs.

    For the last couple of days there was talk of Liewike approaching Gretzky for the role but it was largely dismissed by some over the idea he and especially his wife wouldn't want to spend a winter in T. O.

    I think this is a great move! The shot in the arm the Leafs needed.

    I think he did great with his previous job, and will do well in toronto. The division may have just gotten more interesting.

    I wonder what Rick Vaive thinks about this.

    I predict this begins a major turn around in Toronto.

    I hate the move.

    Never worked in the front office of any organization ever unlike Yzerman and he isn't going to coach, never has anyways. 

    What exactly is he going to do ?

    I think being in charge of player safety certainly put him in a front office that was bigger than just one organization. I think it counts.

    Quintal his replacement -- blast from the past. What capacity has he been in to get the honors?

    1.  Pay attention

    2.  Stop stupid actions

    That right there will put the team in 6th overall in two years.

    That would be his first order of business for sure. He is going to need some time as the President of hockey operations since he didn't go the route Yzerman went. Steve Y spent time with Detroit's scouting staff and that was a huge plus.
