Wild Fire GM Paul Fenton 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jul 30, 2019 7:30 pm

The Wild have fired general manager Paul Fenton just over one year into his tenure with the club, it was announced Tuesday.

\"After giving much thought to this difficult decision, I informed Paul today that he was not the right fit for our organization going forward,\" owner Craig Leipold said in a statement. \"I believe we have a good hockey team, a team that will compete for a playoff spot this year, and I look forward to hiring a general manager that will help us win a Stanley Cup. I would like to thank Paul for his time with the Wild and wish him and his family the best in the future.\"

Fenton\'s tenure was marked by the end of a six-year streak of making the playoffs and a disassembly of the once-promising core of forwards by trading Charlie Coyle, Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter prior to the deadline.

Fenton IMO made continuously poor decisions that made our team older, slower, and smaller. I hope the door hit him on the way out.
