All things FA Presser

Post by Hockey Widow » Tue Apr 08, 2014 5:33 pm

Gotta get it started. Who can write the presser? Take your best shot at what FA says tomorrow then dissect it here.

I wanna see how he stumbles when asked the tough questions about:

1) who hired Torts

2) did he veto trades

3) did he refuse to trade Luongo if there was a salary hold back

4) did he force a CS trade

5) did he put or pull Kesler from the market

6) how much autonomy did the President actually have

7) when was the decision to fire MG made

8) did MG's little radio interview play into it

9) has he got a replacement yet

10) why now? Why not earlier? What not later?

I just want to if all his public image lessons have helped since he fired Nonis and the debacle that presser was.

Where do you think this team is today, a contender or rebuilding?

With the annual renewal of season tickets tomorrow. How much did this decision to fire Gilli's at the strange time have to do with that? Appearance of doing something ?

Do you think the pasta boys also hired someone to start the chants, so they could fire Gillis and bring in the new President and GM that they had already targeted, thus creating the appearance of doing something to appease season ticket holders into renewing tomorrow? Strange timing indeed...

What does it say about this organization and where it is headed that its most successful goalie, coach and GM are all gone within a span of 10 months?

HW like Tony Gallagher seems upset that Gillis was fired? Why? Everyone in town is in celebration except you two?
