Whoever hires Ray Shero as GM I think is going to getting a prize. Boston is talking about it and so is Pittsburgh. I always felt that his father Fred got to the NHL a bit late and I wished he would have stuck it out longer with Rangers.

Jacobs and Wirtz are the dregs of NHL team owners. I don't know whether the story is true about Wirtz, but if it didn't happen, it might have. His executives presented him with a detailed five-year plan on what they intended to do to build a cup winner. At the end of the presentation Wirtz looked a them quizzically and said, "But we are not here to win a cup, we are here to make a profit."
