07:10 AM ET 04.29 | The first steps of what might be an overhaul in Denver took place nearly immediately after Colorado woke up at the end of its nightmare of a season. So what's next? I think Dean Chynoweth is a lead candidate for the job. ... He could easily be the next coach. I guess the bigger questions to me right now are what will become of [GM Greg Sherman] and Pierre Lacroix. Sherman may be on a very thin thread right now, but as of this writing, he's still the GM. Pierre saw his son, Eric, leave the team today, and I know that has to be very hard on him right now. Will Pierre follow him out the door? Only Pierre knows, probably. I do see Joe Sakic playing a much bigger role in management at some point.

What's funny is that Joe Sacco still has to coach team USA at the world championships...a team that has 4 Colorado players on it right now.

Call up Elway ! His other job is only 16- 20 weeks a year anyways ;-)

Can't say Burke won't happen but that's highly unlikely. Burke was the GM of Vancouver when Bertuzzi bum rushed Steve Moore. Some in the Denver organization feel Burke was just as responsible as Marc Crawford. I'm sure he wouldn't find living in Colorado much to his liking once people are reminded of that.

I don't think Sakic wants his Irkness anywhere near Denver.
Sakic seems to me to be the quiet....thoughtful type not making decisions lightly.
I have a feeling he will clean house...but not until he has the replacements lined up.
It won't be Burke

The one positive being that the guys playing are playing for their country and actually want to be there (since they aren't chasing Lord Stanley).
