I'll admit being a little surprised by Dan O'Brien's firing yesterday. I understand the reasons for it - there's a new owner in town and he wants his own man, plus O'Brien's track record certainly isn't much to brag about yet. Still, O'Brien hadn't been there very long, plus the timing is somewhat awkward, with most of the major offseason moves having been completed.
Right now Brad Kullman is the interim GM and will get an interview for the job. I hope he receives serious consideration, rather than them finding another recycled GM like Jim Beattie. I'll admit a bias here - I've had Kullman on my XM show twice, and was more than a little grateful for his time.
