SEATTLE -- Since Ron Francis was hired July 18 as NHL Seattle's first general manager, the steady flow of resumes to his email box has not stopped. Not for one single day.
Same goes for the gusher of well-wishers congratulating him on the GM announcement via texts, emails, phone calls, voice mails, in-person meetings and random encounters pretty much everywhere he goes here in Seattle or while settling affairs back in Raleigh, N.C. The congrats frequently comes with follow-up.
"The number-one question is what's the name going to be," says Francis.
