Honestly, if we missing the playoffs or making the playoffs, it doesn't change the need for us to hire a hockey guy to run the hockey department. Regier excels at running the day to day operations, extracting top value out of his players. He always does exactly what his owners/boss tells him to do. He is a company man, through and through. People are going to hate me for suggesting this, but the exact guy to take this collection of talent and add to it? Brian Burke. Sorry. He isn't very good at asset management (see: Kessel deal). I'd almost want him to Co-GM with Darcy. It'd be the weirdest odd couple setup, but with his guy for hockey guys and how the game should be played (a physical, grind'em down, wear'em out style) and a penchant for big deals (Sedin twins, Pronger deal, etc) with Regier apt for scouting and patience.
