Please no Julien Brisebois or André Savard. We need a clean break from everything we've had in the last decade. If we can't have Jim Nill, I propose:

VP & GM: Paul Fenton (assistant GM in Nashville)
Assistant GM: Dominic Ricard (GM Voltigeurs)
Assistant GM: Marc Bergevin (assistant GM Chicago, former director of player personnel) or Trevor Timmins

Head coach: Guy Boucher (i wish) more likely Marc Crawford
Assistant coach: Patrick Roy
Assistant coach: Randy Ladouceur

And for those bilingual purists, Fenton (key figure and right hand man of Poile) is the only proposed hockey operations personnel that doesn't speak french.

Team:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
??? - Eller - Gionta
??? - ??? - ???
White - Noke- Tootoo
Blunden

Markov - Gorges
Kaberle - Subban
Diaz - Emelin
???

Price
Budaj

??? - Prospects/UFAs on short-term contracts

Trade Gill, Kostitsyn, Campoli & Moen at the deadline for picks and prospects. Trade Weber, Cammy and Pleks (yes, pleks) for picks and prospects (or an elite level player).

Resign Gorges, Price, Subban, Noke, White, Emelin, Diaz and Eller.

Send Gomez to Hamilton (or buyout, depending on new CBA implementation allowances) and sign Tootoo.

Let's build this team the right way, with vision and purpose. It won't be quick, but I don't see sucking as being any different than mediocrity.
