You should really provide a source for the numbers you're throwing out there.

It is a nicely written post but those two guys would be horrible. Cherry is just plain dumb, no way he could do the job. Gretzky doesn't have the business acumen and I doubt he would want to do that job.

The owners are not going to pay a former player to be the commissioner of their league. Only on CDC is Wayne Gretzky a terrible choice, but Trevor Linden a viable option.

Bob McKenzie always seems like an objective source to me. And, unlike Gary Bettman, seems to care about the game of hockey, and not just the NHL.

What a ???? joke. Benning is the worst GM in the NHL. I can't believe this guy is actually this stupid. This imbecile is going to drive this team into the ???? ground.

Of all the suggestions in this thread I think Ken Dryden makes the most sense.He has a legal background and knows the game.That being said I doubt the league would hire a former player.

I was laughing when I saw everyone's opinions that Cherry would ban Europeans and discard all the safety equipment. Well, I think that is a little extreme - if he had his way, he probably would ban everyone, except for perhaps Zdeno Chara.

Cherry has been calling for the league to remove board ledges, hasn't he? I'd say his concern for safety is actually quite high. Modifying the boards and glass to be one single-planed surface would be a very smart addition.

In addition, I think his stance on European players has changed significantly since the 1990s. He seems to have become wiser and less interested in conflicts than before.

The greatest segue into a weather segment.
