I think this misses the point. If we have a strong, competent GM - the HC won't have a reason to 'stand up' to the front office. It's not a HC's place to 'stand up' to the front office to begin with. Only in dysfunctional DC is this considered a necessity. A great GM shapes the roster, the team philosophy, and brings in a HC who by definition is on board with the established direction.Whoever is hired...they have to be strong enough to stand up to the front office. But that is precisely the sort of individual DS does not want in his employ.
If we don't hire a strong, competent GM and Bruce Allen is still the primary power broker, it doesn't matter who we hire.
