This in on from the Sportsnet panel, led by former NHL executive Brian Burke, on Connor McDavid and the Oilers GM job.Said Burke: “He hasn’t complained about his teammates or the team’s lack of performance. He hasn’t said a word. He’s been the ultimate professional. He is one of the top players in the world. And so there will be a line up for that job around the block even though that’s a five Aspirin headache that job.”“And he hasn’t said a word about Coach Hitchcock yet either,” said former GM Doug McLean.Added Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman on McDavid’s worth to the Oilers: “Whatever the situation is, if you open your field to other GM candidates, everybody is going to want that job because you’re starting with a nuclear weapon, and nobody views him any differently because the team has struggled.My takeIt’s good to hear that plenty of qualified candidates will be drawn to apply in Edmonton. It’s also good to know that the Oilers will for the first time in the Katz era conduct a thorough search and interviewing process to find the right GM candidate, something that didn’t happen when Steve Tambellini, Craig MacTavish and Peter Chiarelli were given the job. As for the Oilers job being a “five Aspirin headache,” it would have been interesting to hear Burke expand on that comment, but for now we’ll just take it a face value and recognize that the Oilers are desperately short on NHL quality wingers and are locked into at least one terrible long-term contract, so the new GM will have his work cut out for him.
