Nonis in demand
The Leafs aren't the only team interested Nonis, as he continues to be wooed by the Atlanta Thrashers and an unidentified third NHL team that still has a general manager in place.It certainly wouldn't be much of a surprise if Larry Pleau is out in St. Louis, where the team fell apart down the stretch.
The third team is believed to be the St. Louis Blues. St. Louis president John Davidson could not be reached for comment last night.
It's interesting at how in demand Nonis is. While I think his work in Vancouver was sub-par overall, he was far from the league's most inept GM and I don't have a problem with an organization on the bottom rung like Atlanta taking a chance on him.
Everyone learns from their mistakes, and I'd imagine that'd be the case with Nonis.
