MIAMI (AP) -Former Florida Panthers general manager Randy Sexton says he would welcome the opportunity to stay with the franchise.
Dale Tallon, the former general manager of the Chicago Blackhawks, has replaced Sexton as Florida's GM. On a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Sexton called Tallon a "very, very worthy choice" for the franchise.
Sexton says he has told Tallon he would "help him in any way that he needed it," and planned to speak with Florida's new GM again in the coming weeks. He says he would stay with the Panthers if Tallon thought it was appropriate and he could help.
This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
