I would hate to lose Futa, but

…he would be great for a team in a full rebuild. And it wouldn’t hurt to have a friendly trading partner with lots of high picks.

Jeff Solomon, the Kings vice president of hockey operations, said club executives are considering the Buffalo Sabres request to speak to Michael Futa, the Kings co-director of amateur scouting, for the Sabres vacant general manager position. Buffalos interest in Futa was first reported by TSNs Bob McKenzie.

Just don’t let anyone near Bill Ranford, who is apparently some kind of goalie coach deity.

    We have Yannetti so its not the whole directorship gone.

    Maybe if they send us those two 2nd round picks back :)

      :-D, seriously.

      I’d hate to lose Futa, too, but it’s inevitable that with success, your good subordinates will get offers from other organizations. We’re damned lucky not to have lost John Stevens over the summer.
