Jack Ferreira, who built the expansion Mighty Ducks into winners after only four seasons as general manager, accepted a job Thursday as director of player personnel with the Atlanta Thrashers.

If Jack Ferreira's job is indeed in jeopardy, would Pierre Gauthier be a logical replacement as Duck general manager? A headline over a story quoting unnamed sources Sunday in the tabloid Ottawa Sun read: "Lame Duck GM." No one in the Duck organization has said publicly Ferreira will be out after five seasons on the job. Team President Tony Tavares recently said he will evaluate Ferreira's performance at season's end.

Five weeks ago, after leaving his job as general manager of the Ottawa Senators, Pierre Gauthier said, "No way, not a chance," in response to rumors that he would replace longtime friend Jack Ferreira as general manager of the Mighty Ducks.

The Mighty Ducks, the Walt Disney Co.'s NHL expansion team, took their first big step Tuesday by naming veteran NHL executive Jack Ferreira as general manager. With about six months remaining before the Ducks begin playing at Anaheim Arena in early October, Ferreira had one major advantage over the 10 other candidates interviewed: He's done it before.

Pierre Page said Tuesday he knows why the Mighty Ducks fired him Monday. It had nothing to do with philosophical differences with General Manager Jack Ferreira and everything to do with Ron Wilson's success with the Washington Capitals. "There was a lot of heat in the kitchen," Page said, breaking his 24-hour silence during a subdued news conference in a Costa Mesa hotel ballroom. "It was a timing thing.

In many ways the Mighty Ducks' new coach sounds a great deal like their old one. There is one substantial difference, however. Page, unlike Ron Wilson, is one of General Manager Jack Ferreira's closest friends.

"You want to fix blame, OK, fix it on me," Tavares said Thursday. "But personal attacks have no business here."
