    Wow what a surprising move!

    I believe he used to be one of the head scouts of the Blues (under Davidson) before moving on to be the GM of Jokerit.

    The draft guru who had a huge role is building the current St.Louis Blues team and before that the Ottawa Senators team that made it to the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Very astute move by Columbus. Looks like Davidson is starting to put his stamp on things.

    On another note, somebody posted some behind the scenes videos of the team when Davidson arrived and showed some video where all the scouts and management were discussing prospects for this years draft. I noticed a lot of scenes where Howson was not even there and also asked the question about what kind of player McKinnon was lol. Shouldn't you already know that. Not surprised he got canned but surprised it took this long.

    I think he'll make a very good GM, although the one question mark is how he'll get along with other GMs (I understand he's seen as somewhat arrogant, the kind of guy who "knows what he wants and gets it").

    Anyone care to speculate the approach he'll take to development of young players? Particularly interested about Atkinson...
