Who wants to work together to craft a presentation to Pegula?

With all the Pegula as the Sabres owner in waiting talk has gone on and everyone has dreamed & speculated on what he might do, I've thought about putting together a presentation to Pegula about what I'd like to see happen with the organization moving forward.

After reading Zip's extremely well thought out response to the whole video scouting ripping post, I'm thinking that a collaboration amongst the entire HFB Sabres community would result in a much better finished product.

We could use something like Google Docs to manage the presentation (or just use email....) and then open things up to peer review here at various points in time.

Here is my idea for a rough outline of how to structure things:

- Intro
- State of the Organization
- State of the NHL Roster
- State of the Prospects in the Pipeline
- Proposed Organizational Pillars of Operation (mission statement, organizational goals, etc.)
- Definition of the type of team to build [including the definition of what makes up the ideal Sabres player from a prospect and pro player POV]
- Define what the organization should do for the fans [media accessibility, ticket prices, events, future of the TV broadcasts, etc.]
- Proposed organizational structure
- Proposed upper management (team president, etc.)
- Proposed GM
- Proposed Scouting Department
- Proposed Coaching Staff [incl sections for head coach, assistant coaches, and the extended staff (S&C, Goalie coach, etc.)]
- Proposed Minor League Affiliate(s)
- Wrap up

If you want to join in this project, please let me know in this thread and give me contact info via PM.

Also, if you just want to give your 2 cents on anything I've posted here or in the future, that would be great as well.

I'd like to see this be something that isn't just one person's view on things. But rather a community effort to try and give a solid voice to what changes a certain segment of the fanbase would like to see.

Create a blank PowerPoint on Google Docs and make it open to everyone.

I'll chip in wherever I can. PowerPoints, if need be.

For each "proposal" topic, feel free to create an individual thread to have discussion. If you do, just have a consistent prefix for each so people that don't want to participate can avoid the threads.

I think it's a cool idea, good luck with it.

I'll go ahead and nominate HG to edit the document prior to completion as that's her former gig. Wouldnt mind a hand in reading and commenting on what others say to help round out the content- as to the creation- I'll leave that to the bigger hockey minds.

This is wild because I was thinking about this today.

I'm in.

Could you send me a PM with your email address? I know some guys from other forums that would love to be a part of this, I'm sure.

Good idea.

Each section, proposed by the original poster, should be manned by one or two people. They begin the basics and label key points. A thread shall then be created, displaying their work, where it can be critiqued and fine-tuned by fellow posters.

I was thinking about printing it on really nice paper and mailing a copy to his house in Florida.

Another option would be sending a copy to HSBC Arena with his name on it once the sale takes place.

Publishing it on the net and getting it around would likely get it in front of him, too.

1. I think HG is an excellent choice for final edit / co-edit. I don't know her personally, but her (longer) posts here on non-hockey topics are coherent, persuasive, and the emotion comes through, even if I don't always agree with her. She needs to keep the cuss words out, however.

2. One of the "organizational pillars" has to be, I repeat, HAS TO BE, a generous amount of free seasons tickets for members of this Sabres board, (shared / split among the regulars here, as needed).

3. I'll let you folks handle it. And by opting out of the process, I agree to remain silent on the final product.

We could do that.

Or I was thinking about creating a Wiki page somewhere that we could use.

Certain bits and pieces might require more PPT-ish stuff and other might be fine with just text.....

But, I would expect the end product to be a PPT-ish document of some sort.

Who controls the options for the thread title tags (Proposal, TBN, etc.).

I wonder if we could get one that is for this project?

Here is the Wiki I created.

I hope people like the name:

http://thepegulaproject.wikispaces.com/

I think the first step should be getting agreement on the outline.

Don't know how much I'll be able to contribute to this, but I'm in for whatever little I can.

I'm with you on that.. but I think people just look at large initiatives as too large to tackle, like combating world hunger, etc.

In writing up a presentation for an owner, it is much more likely that your voice will be heard.. though hundreds of small projects like this one could go a long way in tackling a major issue.

I believe Buffaloed ultimately controls them, but forum moderators can request new prefixes per-forum.

I don't think it's necessary, but I can put in a request if desired.

A manual prefix should be sufficient though:

"[The Pegula Project] Proposals: General Manager Canidates"

My posts on hockey topics are a giant pile of horse ****, though, right?



I'd definitely be willing to help out with the editing. So count me in.
