<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NYR1983</b></div><div>We all expect a buyout, this thread was made at the slight possibility that he isn’t now that there’s a new front office who will obviously talk to him and other players to evaluate the situation. If Zibby, Trouba, Kreids, bread all say there’s no issue with him and that it was the coach/GM who had issues with him, do you think they still buy him out?? Why hasn’t he been bought out already? If they 💯 know they are buying him out it would have been done already to get it out of the way right?(for clarity, I’m not saying he isn’t being bought out which you clearly have misunderstood). And this further proves my point, not only does a GM consult with a coach but with the leadership of the team. Hence why Kessel was traded by the penguins…Malkin demanded it(not the GM).</div></div>
They have not bought him out yet because of the expansion draft zippy. They need him for that and then he will be bought out. But by your thinking, if it was all Quinn, and Drury fired Quinn, why would Drury fell like he needed to buy ADA out? Quinn (the problem) is gone, so they could just welcome Tony back open arms, right? So, if he DOES buy him out, what does that say about your thinking?
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NYR1983</b></div><div>Your attitude and knowledge are telling, either you’re a young person or just simply a low level employee. The concept that you don’t think they sit down together and discuss what the team needs is nuts. Why do you think every team has a scouting team? Because they need to identify characteristics of players(in and outside the NHL). The GM might be the guy making the phone calls and dealing with contracts but the coach and GM 💯 work as a team. Sure, the GM might be the boss, in so few words. But they discuss the team needs or ISSUES together, hence why they were fired together. Using your logic, only Gorton would have been fired as he is responsible for the roster. Can’t fault Quinn for Zibby having COVID and not being the same old Zib for the first 20 games, can’t blame Quinn for Bread taking a leave of absence with the Russia bs, and finally, can’t blame Quinn for Gortons decision to remove what was essentially a 20G offensive Dman from the team. Actually you can’t blame Quinn for having a “soft” team either. You can however praise Quinn for his above .500 team, with a rebuilding team in the toughest division. But that’s not what transpired, they were fired together as a team because the truth in it all is that they operated as a team. Drury doesn’t hire Gallant because he is a yes man, he hires him because they see eye to eye on what they want to do, where they want to go and he will be honest and push back on some level. Similar to how a CEO, COO, CFO will work as a team, push back, agree and disagree on things regardless of one of them technically being “the boss”. It’s just not as simple as “boss” and “employee”…</div></div>
LOL.....WOW. When they buy out ADA, what will you say then? Never mind....I already know.
