Bryan Hayes: “Not a family title now, however it has a historical past with McDavid, has a historical past with I assume Connor Brown, with Warren Foegele, with Jeff Jackson who now runs the present on the market in Edmonton.

Hayes: “That’s what it’s screams of to me ‘O’ however clearly, Jeff Jackson is aware of him. like . Jeff was an agent that was in Toronto and was working in Ontario quite a bit.”

O’Neill: “Effectively, I get it and I admire considering outdoors the field, simply not recycling and grabbing some man simply because he’s been within the, within the NHL earlier than.

However I don’t know. Let’s ask Ryan about it.

Hayes: “Right here he’s, Ryan Rishaug. Go forward and reply that Ryan as a result of that’s what it screams of outdoor Edmonton, is that is McDavid’s man. In order that’s why he’s the top coach now.

Rishaug: “Yeah. And I feel there’s a couple of selections which were made that type of result in that narrative proper, about like, simply when Jeff Jackson being introduced within the place he was introduced in and now, now Kris Knoblauch and Connor Brown his outdated linemate kinda is like, like Jay Onrait flat out requested me final evening, what’s occurring? Like, is he the GM or what?

I did a little bit of tweeting on this entrance right this moment, guys. I bought some clarification right this moment. I had a dialog with Jeff Jackson, backside line, Connor McDavid will not be consulted on these massive organizational selections as a result of he doesn’t wish to be. He’s not introduced into the method. He’s not consulted. He’s not within the room to make the choice. He desires to concentrate on hockey.

So the concept he’s behind the scenes like ‘Hey, deliver this man in, deliver that man in’ and it’s, it’s simply not correct. It’s not what he desires. He doesn’t need that stage of involvement. And Jeff Jackson would know that he’s been alongside for the experience with Connor McDavid this whole time.

What this speaks of is a company who trying to the long run is clearly actually anxious about probably shedding Connor McDavid someday. For certain they’re. Why wouldn’t they be?

And so it’s very clear they’re making some selections with that in thoughts, placing some individuals in place that he’s snug with, those who he’s aware of, attempting to arrange a scenario the place McDavid is is snug.

And I don’t suppose he’s asking for that. I feel they’re doing that and these are good hockey individuals. It’s not like these are loopy hires or something, however you may’t deny the sample. It’s very a lot there.
