General Managers Reviews

Previously, I wrote an article of NHL TEAM REVIEWS. This time it is General Managers Reviews. Read about how well or how poor every GM did his job. All of the GMs are letter graded, like A’s, B’s, C’s, D’s, and F’s. See what your team’s GM got and why.

Al Iafrate's Come Back

Another report of The Sporting News, in Slover’s mailbag, says that Al Iafrate might make a come back to the NHL. It must be Mario’s come back that inspired him. Iafrate contacted GM Rutherford of the Hurricanes that he will attend training camp as a try out, similar to Richer. Is this a good idea for the Hurricanes, Iafrate, and the NHL? It sure is, Iafrate is still 35 and is 6’3 weighing 235 lbs, but it has been 3 years since Iafrate last skated in the NHL. If Iafrate can resume his supershot, that held the record for the hardest slapshot, then he will make a great come back. Opinions are requested.

Amonte Could Be Dealt, Back to The Big Apple?

An addition to the Ray Slover “mailbag” of The Sporting News is a rumor of Blackhawks star RW Tony Amonte getting traded, possibly the New York Rangers.
