This is just completely speculation.. but I'm 72% sure he's an executive for the Nashville Predators. He eliminates five teams throughout his 'interview', and whenever somebody ask him a detailed question about the Phoenix Coyotes, he mentioned that he thought highly of two of their former players, Vernon Fiddler and Scottie Upshall. Those two certainly have a little something in common, don't they?
Most importantly.. he predicts a season by the new year. I believe him, also.
P.S.- You can't host an AMA on Reddit without proof of your identity. He had to send proof that he was an NHL Exec to a moderator prior to the start of this AMA. So it's legit. Nice to see someone close to the situation being honest and open.
P.S.S.- He said he played one year of College and a bit of junior hockey. Any guesses?
