What's the likelihood of being able to pry Jim Benning out of Beantown? In addition to working with (and presumably learning from) arguably one of the top two GMs in the NHL right now (Chiarelli), he was the head of amateur drafting for the Sabres from 1998 to 2004 (during those years, they picked guys like Miller, Gaustad, Roy, Pominville, Vanek, MacArthur, Stafford and Kaleta).

As the coach, Pascal Vincent might be our best option - unlike Roy, he's been able to gain some NHL experience this year. While Roy is undoubtedly a successful coach and GM in the Q, he's been able to lure several high-profile European players, whereas Vincent was successful in the Q with far fewer resources at his disposal.
