We can only hope it'll be someone with the ability to assemble a competitive team.

They need a GM that will focus on truculence, pugnacity, and testosterone. Those are the keys to success. Just look at the leafs.

That's a rare occurrence.

Congratulation Kyle!
It's gutsy, but I like the decision.

What makes him a good choice for the position?

Have you read much?

In regards to Dubas? No, not much more than the posted article. I can see how nepotism played in his hiring but I am curious as to why YOU believe it's a good decision.

I know the family!
And, for 25 years old you can't have a better resume.
He has achieved the top level in all his endeavors. This should be no different!
The talent his dad, uncles and grandpa have, what do you think was the family discussions were about?
IMO this kid was groomed for a job like this.
The only down side is his ability to succeed will make his tenure short!
If you look at sports in general, youth has made it's way into all levels.
I would like to see him pick a coach that is close to his age as well.
IMO this is the right direction for the Greyhounds.

It would appear he has grown up living and breathing hockey which can only be a positive. He must have enjoyed what he learned from his family because he has chosen this as his career. I must admit, I am curious how much a person his age understands chemistry. I assume If he applies what he has learned from his family as well as his scouting skills he can help build a well balanced competitive team. I hope he does achieve his goal. I enjoy it when they think outside the box (in this case youth).

I kinda like the idea of a 25 year old running the show. Young guys have done well in other sports so why not try. It doesn't take a 60 year old man to know about hockey. They played in a different time so there are pro's and cons for each.

I like the idea of the cons coaching instead of the pros. Pros are too predictable, especially the old guys.

I only hope he stands up to Lukenda and his pals when it counts. I hope he isn't a "Yes" man.

I don't know him personally....but I know his Gfather back as far as when he chummed around with Marty Pavelich and coached the Greyhounds. My son played hockey with his uncle and father when they were kids.....along with Ronnie Francis. So the kid has a lot of background. I wish him good luck
