This is a takeoff on the more conservative, "tweak" approach dudacek seems to propose in his "What's our best move?" poll. Add a defenseman, drop a disappointing coach.
I'd like to think bigger, bolder, brasher. This franchise needs a jolt, a shock, an ice-bucket challenge. But what?
I'd make a poll, but I don't think I have that many ideas.
A hockey czar would be one approach. Almost by definition, that would entail cleaning front-office house and shaking up the roster and maybe taking a step back, if that's even possible.
Trading an untradeable would be another. The return on an Eichel would have to be real and spectacular.
Finally, there's an approach that would seem to fly in the face of my anti-meddling philosophy: if Pegulas are gonna Pegul, then change up the Pegulas. If Kim and Terry want to focus like a laser beam on the Bills, they should give Terry's oldest children operational control of the Sabres.
Like that infamous orangutan said, "What the hell do you have to lose?!"
Snark is invited, but I'm really interested in outside the box ideas that could radically change the path we're on, which appears to be a path toward a first-round exit in 2019 (followed by a parade, of course).
