Lou actually got docked a handful of points for the Zaitsev deal that was announced just as they were putting the finishing touches on this piece.

Also, looking at Detroit's cap situation, I'm thinking Mike Babcock is a terrible, terrible GM.

Dubas' first week or month on the job during the offseason would be fascinating.

Even if he goes somewhere else, I'd be very interested to see how he went about running a team. I really like what he has done with the Marlies (who weren't in bad shape when he took over), and I really like how he handled the 2015 draft.

But I'm really hoping he gets to do it here.

Seems like to me that's been the plan all along.  With Shanahan refusing Colorado permission to talk to Dubas pointing to it. 

At least I really really really hope so.

When, exactly, does Lamoriello's contract end?  Would Dubas in fact by in charge of the draft, UFAs?

If management contracts are like coaches and player contracts, they expire June 30th (i.e. the day before UFA kicks off, a week after the draft).

If all the changes are internal, and money not really being an issue, things don't really need to follow that date exactly before Dubas/Hunter receives authorization to do whatever.

Thanks.  Yes, I guess it doesn't really matter if they have tapped his successor already.

Shanahan didn't refuse permission.  Dubas declined to talk with them.

It's hard to track all the he said, team said, but nowhere did I read that Dubas declined to talk to Colorado. He declined to interview with Arizona when they reached out earlier.

All signs on the Toronto side and Colorado side pointed to Shanahan being the kibosher of Dubas becoming the hockey operations guy with the Avs.

Ah, must have confused the two.  I knew he declined to interview with someone, must have been the Arizona one.  Although I do wonder if the reason Shanahan declined to let him interview with Colorado was that they had already made the decision to promote him?
