NHL Rumors: On the Kyle Dubas and the Pittsburgh Penguins

Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek on 32 Ideas: The Podcast – Penguin Kyle?

Marek: “What’s the most recent between Dubas and the Pens?”

Friedman: “So on Saturday night time we reported that the Penguins had been anticipated to ask for permission to talk to Dubas. As we taped this, early Sunday night after Recreation 2 of the Western Convention closing, I hear that they do have permission to talk to Dubas. So if goes to go anyplace, I believe we’re going to seek out out fairly shortly.

From what I perceive, Pittsburgh was very near ending their search. I believe there was the chance that we had been going to seek out who the brand new head of Pittsburgh’s hockey operations was going to be early this week.

I imagine that was the plan and I imagine that’s the place we had been headed, Jeff. And once more, I simply need to be sure, I’m not satisfied, it would find yourself being the case, however I’m not satisfied it’s going to be president of hockey operations and GM for Pittsburgh. I believe they’re going to rent “one lead hockey individual” and type of fill it out from there.

One of many issues I used to be advised is, they could solely use the president of hockey operations title if they’ve to advertise another person to GM to get them out of one other group.

Anyway, I believe they had been getting actually shut. In case you’ve heard all of the podcasts, you heard the names we’ve type of talked about. I believe Mathieu Darche is one individual from Tampa they had been taking an actual onerous have a look at. We’ll see the place it goes.

However now Dubas has dropped into the center of all these searches. And I’ll say this, I had individuals who had been type telling me that the entire thought of Dubas possibly going to Ottawa in some unspecified time in the future, and spicing up that rivalry with Toronto, undoubtedly appealed to some folks however I believe Pittsburgh is gonna make their pitch and see if that appeals Kyle Dubas. And I believe that course of is underway.”

Marek: “The Kyle Dubas speak. The Kyle Dubas content material was in every single place this weekend, and the conversations had been wild. I simply need to be sure I throw this on the market on the Pod, simply as, I don’t in the end suppose it’s going to occur however one dialog I had, somebody was speculating that they might see Dubas speaking to Fenway Sports activities however not in regards to the Pittsburgh Penguins, moderately about baseball.

And it could be a really Kyle Dubas transfer to swerve everyone and find yourself working in baseball for Fenway Sports activities and never…

Friedman: “Why didn’t you simply Liverpool? He’s going to speak to Fenway to run Liverpool.”

Marek: “I’m simply placing it on the market. I’m simply throwing issues on the market on this podcast right this moment.”
