He did say he'd be looking at GMs & CEOs at the same time but would hire the CEO first & let him have the final say in the GM. Nonis himself acknowledged he'd been asked, there's some substance to some of this at least.

Agree.

If I'm not mistaken, it was confirmed that the Lightning received permission to speak with Yzerman.

It's more than speculation.

To bring this back to the point of Yzerman: This was the second report in a week that Yzerman is out. Yzerman's only on the record comment regarding things is "no comment".

Both reports come from non-traditional sources (The Fourth Period and Boruk from CSN). There was also a report via twitter earlier this week saying that Yzerman and Vinik "Aren't even close" (it was an AM radio station reporting this -- not one in our market). I'm not going to say these guys are right... But the reports wouldn't come to light unless te Bolts and Stevie Y were talking in the first place.

So THAT's going on. Besides that? I'm in Donnie's camp. That and my own camp that Vinik isn't playing these negotiations out in the media. That's not how hes conducted business as a hedge fund manager and not how he'll conduct business now.

I don't disagree there, but like you said, Yzerman's only comment publicly has been "no comment". And yet, the report saying that isn't going to happen has still come out, so apparently, someone has come out to the media.

However, I do find it strange that TSN or some of the other big outlets haven't picked up on it yet. If Yzerman did indeed say "no", then why not just say it publicly?

Anybody know what kind on contract Hextall has with LA?

Because the reports are false, plain and simple. Negotiations are ongoing and if there is an ultimate NO, he'll come public with it.

Hope you're right.

Just got done watching NHL Live and E. J. Hradek mentioned Ron Hextall could be in the mix for the GM job. Kinda outta the blue and he didn't elaborate so take it for what it's worth.

I think when you are trying to figure the Yzerman situation out you need to look at what some others who had been in the mix did. Nonis made a formal announcement he was out which coincided with his signing an extension with the Leafs.

While I don't dismiss out of hand what has been reported, as far as I'm concerned the possibility still exists for Yzerman until I see the formal press release where he takes his name out of consideration.

On a related note, Hextall to me is a very interesting candidate. From what I've seen in LA he's been a important part in revitalizing that franchise. To me he's better than some names I've seen put out there (McGuire, Risebrough).
