1) Clear vision to create Montreal into a long term contender and a realistic plan on how to do it.

2) Media-savvy. Someone who can not only handle the inevitable pestering of the Montreal media but can deflect some of the pressure from the players. It would also be nice if we had someone who could use our media when drumming up interest for players on the block. When a media figure tries to create controversy, don't deflect, reflect.

3) Professional mentality. None of this, firing on game-day, traded in-game or feeding an interim coach to the wolves. The organization is a team and those in leadership positions have to remember that. Former Red Wing players and staff always praise how that organization treated everyone respectfully and like adults. We need to emulate that. If a media figure is trying to create a soap opera for more readers/viewers then they are the enemy.
