Marty Hurney may have touched here on a big reason he is the interim general manager of the Panthers and Dave Gettleman is out as the general manager: "One of my strengths is dealing with people. Anytime you're leading or managing you have to have that ability to communicate with people. Not only talk to people, but listen to people.
