This is an excellent hire, Ross was the "sexy" candidate but the longer this process went and the more I read the more I wanted Gettleman - he seemed like the most qualified candidate by a long shot.

I've pretty much wanted either Ross or Gettleman the entire time, and either one was going to be a win for us so yeah

The more I learned about him the more he definitely seemed like the best man for the job.

I'm very pleased. LOL still with the Beane knob polishing. Get over it!

but the age though....

Doesn't matter at all. The guy is barely over 60.

What are you, 12?

We've got a General Manager. And what looks to be a damn good one at that. Hooray!!!

Now all he's got to do is restrucuture some if our stars, cut Nakamura, get us under the cap, draft well, and then we'll be golden.

FNZ guys say they're hearing (unknown from where) that Brandon Beane won't even be employed by the Panthers much longer.

Makes me wonder if perhaps Beane was the guy telling people that he was a candidate.

To be fair, the purposelessness in whatever you post amuses the rest of us

Cool, I'm only on here for entertainment purposes and to read Mr. Scot posts(it's a bit stalkerish but the dude always has good info).

I ran it through Google Translate. It came back with this:

I'll be back just as soon as I can figure out a way to explain how I was actually right about Brandon Beane being a serious candidate even though it looks like he wasn't even interviewed.

He was never guaranteed a job under the new GM, JR told him that when he got the bump up to Interim GM. Like I said in the other thread about Hurney. He ran a thin and lean front office, because he did some much work on the personal side of things and on the other side was Beane. They did the work that teams usually hire 12-15 people to do. That's just the way Hurney wanted it structured, expect lots of news once the press conference is over on new staff hires in the front office on both personnel and operations.
