One name emerged Tuesday that is clearly a serious candidate. On Saturday, sources tell me that owner Craig Leipold interviewed Ducks assistant GM David McNab. Here is the link to the story.
McNab is an interesting candidate. He’s another second generation hockey guy and is extremely respected. He’s been with Anaheim since Day One and is largely responsible for the Ducks’ always impressive collegiate crop, which has been an area where critics say the Wild must improve.
McNab’s signed Chris Kunitz, Andy McDonald, Dustin Penner, Ryan Shannon, Ryan Carter, Curtis Glencross and MacGregor Sharp out of college.
