Here are the morning papers for the non-playoff teams:
- As linked on IC yesterday, apparently Jay Feaster has an interest in the Colorado GM job.
- Mike Heika wonders whether the Stars franchise will continue to move forward with a two-GM arrangement?
- The Oilers fired Craig MacTavish on Wednesday and Robert Tychkowski is calling the franchise a mess right now. Many changes are on the way. Derek Van Diest has the reaction from Steve Tambellini’s press conference. Decisions have yet to be made on the team’s assistant coaches. Don’t expect MacT to be out of a job for long.
- Here is a post-season chat Michael Russo had with Wild fans about the team’s disappointing season.
- More layoffs from Lightning ownership on Wednesday.
- Brian Burke is already burning up the phones lines trying to move up in the draft, writes Paul Hunter.
