Not excited. Sakic has no experience beyond learning for a couple years from a management team that has largely been a failure. If PL stays, this means little besides a Oilers type reshuffling of job titles while keeping the same group largely together. If PL goes, I sure hope Sakic brings in experienced, outside help in terms of a GM and support staff and doesn't just lean on Billington and Sherman.

They're already key players in our management team. Do you think we have a hell of a front office right now?

I think your faith in Sakic being effective as team president simply because he was an elite player is somewhat naive. Maybe he'll do well, maybe he won't, but he surely isn't close to being among the most qualified candidates from the job if this organization was willing to operate in a less nepotistic way.
