Fire Capuano. Interview and Hire an NHL coach with experience. One who has a stanley cup on his resume.
If we don't win the lottery... Trade up to pick Nail Yakupov. (Include our #2 pick, with an AHL prospect or Josh Bailey)
Dump: Pandolfo & Reasoner, Jurcina & Eaton. (Probably the most likely thing that will be done)
Sign 2 solid UFA D-men, rather than break the bank for Ryan Suter. (Dump 4.1 million in jurcina and eaton and spend 11 million. Instead of giving Suter 7 million)
Overpay to sign Zach Parise. (7.5 million? This in my opinion has to be done. Securing the jewel of the UFA pool gives us some sort of credibility, that the front office is serious about making us a winner again.)
Sign Evgeni Nabakov.
With 14-15 million added to payroll, we would still be in the middle of the pack regarding payroll.
Give the "C" to John Tavares. This is HIS team.
Make Streit your power-play specialist with one of the UFA D-Men. He can play alongside one of our prospects 5 on 5. He can succeed given less responsibility and ice time.
Have Nino play an entire season at Bridgeport.
