That's the big issue, good GMs are hard to find. The last two hirings are probably the best available and by a large margin (JK and Nill). I don't see any others that are high on my respect radar. Experience in the NHL GM foodchain is a must which limits the survey field.

I do think DW has serious holes in his game, but if pinkslipped, he might himself be the best available. I certainly wouldn't want Burke or Lowe or several others whose holes make the Grand Canyon look like a small wash in the desert.
