Look who suddenly became A LOT more important?
Amerks' press release via Our Sports Central:
Our Hockey Department is focused solely on this task and Jody Gage continues to lead the Amerks' efforts in this area. This will be an ongoing process up until July 1st and Jody will be active in this recruitment drive on an ongoing basis.
We have been in contact with Bill Torrey and Randy Sexton of the Florida Panthers on the departure of Jacques Martin to Montreal. They have indicated to us that they are working to fill the Panthers general manager role as soon as possible and have assured us that any negotiations and commitments that have been made, on their behalf, regarding the Rochester Americans will continue to be a priority of the new GM and his management team.
That Gage flip-flop from last week sure appears on much more solid footing. Someone has to run the show...
