Editorial Update 7:00 pm: I’m interrupting Justin’s Storm Advisory with a post that would normally wait until the morning, but but Tom Dundon took to the airwaves today in an interview with David Glenn, and talked a lot about some very timely topics:
- The NHL draft, which is happening in his back yard
- His perspective on Andrei Svechnikov, who is the only prospect he met in an in-person interview
- A lot about the state of the roster in general, including the status of Jeff Skinner and Justin Faulk
- Balancing what’s best for the organization against franchise history (specifically framed in reference to Rod Brind’Amour’s promotion, Ron Francis’s departure, and the ongoing situation with Chuck Kaiton’s future on the radio broadcast)
- Oh, and whether he considers himself to be a lucky person.
Interview starts immediately in the Hour 3 segment and lasts about 20 minutes.
Now back to Justin :) - Jamie
