Response to Kills me to write this

FWF and I think that while it may be more difficult to recruit people to PG, I have a hard time believing that it is impossible, especially if the organization is willing to give the person what they "need". Those needs could be money, it could be complete control over hockey operations, it could be support in developing their own personal skills, it could be respect, it could be allot of things.

I don't think there is any doubt that attracting people to PG has more challenges than say a place like Kelowna, Vancouver or Saskatoon, but it's not exactly a City of 10,000 people either Where there is a will there is a way and I find it awfully hard to believe that PG is the absolute least attractive option for hockey minds in North America wanting to coach in the best junior league in the world.

Honestly, if you said to a highly qualified individual "I want you to rebuild this franchise and I'm giving you COMPLETE control to do it, to bring in your people, to make executive decisions and I WILL support you 100% in those efforts", I think you'd have a NUMBER of very interested applicants. I think you have to be willing to take it to that level and I think you have to be comfortable with giving someone that level of control. Some people would be okay with that and some may not, but I think it is possible to find someone with those qualifications if you are willing to do what it takes. It's no coincidence that the most successful organizations (I'm talking everywhere here, not just hockey) always seem to find the "best" people.
