Fire Tambo and KLowe. Tank the season, there are no positives left in the season. None so whatever. Get in position to draft Jones. Franchise dman are hardly ever traded. Take Jones with the #1 pick. Trade RNH for the 2nd overall pick and take MacKinnon. Trade Eberle or Yakupov for the 3rd overall pick and take Barkov. Centre position will be set for the next decade. A GM with half a brain will be able to bring 2 wingers with size with the 2 2nd round picks we have. Trade Hemsky and Gagner for more established players or to Pittsburg for Despres and Harrington/Morrow/Bennett. Engage in trade talks with LA to get Bernier. Buyout Horcoff and Smyth. Move DD to another team like the Panthers for Kulikov.

A new GM will have the following core to work with.

Hall MacKinnon Eberle/Yakupov
???? Barkov Bennett

Jones J. Schultz
Klefbom Despres
Kulikov N. Schultz


This is of course a huge shakeup and is needed in a huge way.
Also get some new jerseys.

A new GM, a new coach, new jerseys and a new rink in 2 yrs.
