Problem solved-
Ross fires Ireland, promotes Philbin to GM duies as well as HC. Ross also agrees to let Philbin hire his choice as an asst. (Asst. from GB?) to him, taking some menial work off Joe. Joe has final say.

Philbin will then build his team through the draft with his asst. and heavy doses of input from Sherman and Coyle.

Your'e all welcome. Haha!

Seriously, why can't this work??
