It would take an astute, experienced, determined and aggressive GM to deal with the calamity of difficulties the Sharks face, but, instead, we get a neophyte, who, of course, will be given the benefit of every doubt and be immune to criticism, for obvious reasons. The outlook for hockey in San Jose would appear to be anything but promising.
Why would "an astute, experienced, determined and aggressive GM" even
come to SJ? If someone matching those attributes were to come, I would
be highly suspicious of his qualifications. I wonder how many prospects
they contacted who either turned down the interview or responded "no Way".
Grier seems an OK choice with experience as a player, coach, and in
front office roles.
He also has family members that are active in team management roles
Some big decisions coming up: head coach, staff, and the draft.
