from the CFL? ted lasso style?Martin Madden (Assistant GM for the Ducks) should be near the top of every list. Pierre McGuire's name will come up as it always does.
Another guy whose name was heard a lot for a bunch of spots was Pat Brisson.
To be honest, I don't want a former NHLer whose new career is transitioning into management. I want an actual manager. And I can't be bothered to scour every team's front office to see which one of them has a Québécois as their assistant GM so that I can name them as a candidate automatically.
She won't be a real candidate when The Charlatan is fired, but maybe ten years from now, Catherine Raiche could be a name worth considering.
