With O'Connell, Futa, and Ferreira, the Kings have a lot of experienced and competent choices. Luc? I don't see him being an Asst GM.
I don't want to see Luc ever being involved in player personnel decisions. Surely the Kings have learned their lesson by now, players from earlier Kings' eras should have nothing to do with player personnel or on-ice hockey decisions, unless they are a member of Lombardi's management team. Other than the occasional wave to the crowd from the stands Gretzky can stay away too.
Who knows? Maybe some day Mike Donnelly or Nelson Emmerson will be GM material, but please no "big name" former stars that haven't paid their dues in the area of player development.
My personal favorite for Assistant GM at this time would be Mike Futa. I believe he was a GM in the OHL at one time.
