If I was Nonis I would take a wait and see approach and sell off assets if they get off to a poor start, with the intention of drafting in the top 5. You only have to suffer through half as many disappointing games and the top end of the 1st rd is outstanding. New GM should feel comfortable with that scenario as well, as they're not going to fire him at the end of the year.

Florida or bust.
That does sound like a good strategy. With that goaltending though I can't see how they don't get off to a bad start. If he's sticking with it then I think Nonis has already decided to tank. Knowing the Leafs though they'll get hot at the end and grab 9th spot.
