Before a huge deadline, we're trusting Tom Fitzgerald to manage assets? Even if we hire a new GM and he is somehow more capable, how familiar will they be with the assets at hand? Not a fan

Timing is horrific for this organization. Real ugly. Seems like a clueless move - have to assume something big behind the scenes happened.

I agree its horrible timing but i feel like Fitz is a fine replacement, atleast for now. He's widely respected around the league and was in the discussion for multiple GM jobs last offseason, so teams seem to think he knows what hes doing

Not sure what NJ ownership was expecting with a poope roster. Likely the PK Subban trade did it. He got great value for Hall.

OK but who wins the "Be the GM" contest for Hall?

His allegiance to Hynes to me destroyed his credibility with ownership.Throw in the fact it’s painfully obvious the years of Sheros drafts have this organization about 5 more years behind turning it around. Now I feel we are getting somewhere. I am happy somebody else will be in charge of building a roster around Nico, Hughes,Bratt, and our core of young D(Severson Butcher, Smith & Dahl)

I like shero. i liked him in Pgh. Tom F was his guy in PGH so when he left the pens, fitzgerald followed him to NJ. Not sure how the process or assessments would change from when shero was in charge. maybe shero goes back to nashville under poile again??

There better be a good reason other than the losing season. This is stupid. Ray is a competent GM. Not signing Hall isnt a reason to can him. One could argue that was tye right move to make. Maybe its Rays fault for keeping Hynes,.. I just dont get canning him now. Nico is just bitting his stride, Hughes is 18.. Blackwood looks good. ..i dont get it.

Four years. Zero signs of improvement.

Yet still some (most?) will make excuses for him.

Much improved from 4 years ago. We have two young centres that look poised to lead this team going forward. A bunch of hobey baker nominees in the minors, 25M cap space next season, and some good 1st round picks. Shero won almost every trade, and brought in the 3 time KHL player of the year who is now over 1ppg since Hall was moved. Shero made this team young and fast, and improvement is very apparent if you watch what the youth are doing on a nightly basis.

As a pens fan, you should be a little kinder to the guy who took your squad to the promised land. Yikes
