    Rhodes seems to have an Al Ford type hold on that organization for some reason.
    Different job but I see the comparison.

      Brock and Jason have been flying out to Seattle to talk with him all winter, they extended multiple generous offers, and have been in contact with him every day. Not sure what more they can do.
      I don't put the loss of Reilly on Sunderland either. Many will. Because they play the blame game.

          They still have to play the role of a meatshield. Ketshup man may still (and probably will) play that card.

            I guess I forgot the smiley. I thought the humour was obvious. I guess on this board one can never assume such things.

              Well, Reilly can look at the team and think, "They weren't a playoff team last year when I was there. What have they done to make them a contender this year?" If he thinks nothing, then that is partly on Sunderland.

                There is no real way of knowing whether or not Reilly would have decided to finish his career in BC even if none of the events you mentioned had happened.

                    At the end of the day he is the GM, so it is somewhat understandable, even though there are things out of his control. I know there was yammering on TSN about 'is the Maas/Reilly relationship that strong?' I have no idea, but if MR was not down with Maas any more, then stuff like that was within his control. There are lots of factors that are both within his control and not. I tend to agree that some of the bigger ones are not.

                      Me too, thus the smiley faux pas. Another -30įC morning has us getting up late these days. Second cup of coffee here I come.

                        I think Reilly believes in Ed more. That's one thing, and that has to do with who he sees he can another Cup with. The huge thing is geography. The money would be about the same. Also, home games in a dome. But this move is going to be mostly about family and security imo. And yes, Reilly has a very good relationship with Jason Maas. That has nothing to do with it.

                          Personally I think the relationships between players and staff are overblown. Players will always make the best decision for themselves regardless of the relationships they may leave behind.

                            They guy wants to be near family and home. I get that and wish him the best.

                                I would hope the board is smart enough to step in before that happens. Iím not quite sold on Brock yet, but Iím not ready to give up on him yet either, itís still too early for that.
