Fair warning: I'm 100% stealing this from #MvsW today. It's not my idea, but it's fucking brilliant, so thank you to the listener whose name I'm forgetting who wrote it in and asked Greg and Jeff.

You are named Preisdent of an NHL expansion team tomorrow. You need to fill out your entire front office from GM to Hockey Ops to the entire coaching staff. But there's a catch — you can only fill those ranks by selecting from the pool of NBC and/or Sportsnet personalities.

All I know is my head scout and GM would be Pierre ;) :chug:

There's plenty of former forwards and defensemen on the lists. Eddie O, Bret Hedican, The Ferraros, the world's best trade chip Anson Carter. Mike Keenan a previous head coach. But shit would the front office be hard to fill. Maybe Bob McKenzie or Dreger.

The Ferraro brothers successfully bankrupted a youth organization in 2 years. Fwiw, the organization has been around since the 70's. So they go on the no fly list along with Milbury.

I would create a ghost position that actually does nothing meaningful or noticeable, but take the financial hit to hire Pierre for that position so that hockey fans don't have to listen to him anymore.

Could put him to work as an in-arena attraction. Sorta like "Stump the Schwab" but hockey-centric and called "Stump the Knob". Or make him a torture device for unruly fans. If you fight in the stands you don't get kicked out of the arena, you just are tied to a chair and have to listen to him tell you about the childhoods of various players. If you can make it 15 minutes you can go back to your seat.

When I saw the thread title, I thought we were going to get to do an Expansion Draft where teams couldn't protect anyone but could only lose 1 player each and your team had to be cap compliant. That would have been a good time.

We did something similar to that in the old old board 14 years ago.

Everyone pretty much picked what was then the current rangers roster :)

This is exactly what I was hoping for as well.

That's why I said you can only take 1 player from each team.

Which club was that?
