The PG is reporting that Jason Botterill has been promoted to Assistant GM. Evidently, he was a salary cap guru that Shero relied upon. Considering that this move happened as quick as it did, it sounds like there was a succession plan in place and Botterill has been singled out for quite some time. As everyone knows, management of the salary cap is what is going to make or break GM's in the new NHL. Best of luck to ya, Botterill.
