Let’s consider this the official start of the offseason.
The General Managers Meetings take place today through Wednesday in Chicago. As a general rule, this week is not nearly as exciting as the December Winter Meetings. Not the same number of hot stove rumors. Not nearly the same wheeling and dealing.
But, things can and do happen here. You can’t put this many GMs in one place and not see the potential for significant conversations, even if those conversations simply set the stage for big announcements in the future.
