Another GM spot filled as Hurricanes bring in legendary Whalercane Ron Francis to steer the ship.

Flames hire Brad Treliving as their new GM. I quite litteraly know nothing about him outside of him being the assistant GM in Phoenix since 2007. Anyone got anything else?

I don't know anything about the guy but I imagine it doesn't really matter with Burke at the helm and Button likely getting more say in who gets picked. I'm sure it will be just fine until he inevitably gets fired.

I find it laughable that Burke still has a job in the NHL. He loves blowing himself, he thinks he's God's gift to hockey management. he's a joke. Funny after apparently he had tons of candidates and alot of interest, he hires the first guy he interviews...what a joke.

I love the Francis hiring, he's alot like Yzerman. He's put in alot of legwork around the team and studied the business of hockey before being given the GM spot. I think he will be successful.

Couldn't agree more on this part. He brings in a lot of experience as player(20+ years), and he basically did every job in the organization before Rutherford stepped down and appointed the Hurricanes new General Manager. He's got a lot of work to do, that's for sure.
