Brendan Shanahan was a player for Lamoriello's Devils as recently as 2009. 6 years later as President of the Leafs, he has hired Lamoriello, previously President and GM of the Devils for 29 years, to be the GM of the Leafs. Fucking weird.

He's the experienced guy to tide things over in a very raw management group.

Still a stunning hire. Drafted Shanahan 2nd overall only what, 27 summers ago?

I was thinking about that. Looked up on Wikipedia and Lou was named prez in April of 1987. He named himself GM prior to the 1987-88 season.

Haha- I thought that too. It will be interesting to see how they do! If the schlubs are right, the world may turn on its head.

One thing is for sure...this will cost Toronto an assload of money when Lou cans Babcock after 2 or 3 seasons.

Lamoriello is like the last GM that you hire a coach prior to hiring as your GM.

If you think Lou Lamoriello went to Toronto to be part of some committee that makes decisions, you don't know Lou Lamoriello.

The major difference here: He has a boss. In NJ he was Pres/GM/Dictator/sometimes Head Coach

Pre-retirement mentoring job with nice payday plus the chance of a glory grab in a big market I would suppose. Wonder the length and term?
