Wanna be the boss? Make this happen, JM...

The completely awesome Orland Kurtenblog has reported on a new - and quite original - Vancouver Canucks promotion: "You Call the Shots: Be the Canucks General Manager for a Day!", you know, to go with the myriad other "new and quite original" promotions.
In a nutshell, win the contest and become GM of the 'Nucks for a day. Or more likely, the GM's shadow for a day (and Mike Gillis must be thaaarilled). As the Kurtenblog proclaimed, they're not looking to unload the Sedins, but a minor-league deal might be fun. Maybe hitting the rolodex, dialing up Mats' agent and offering 12 mil for the big Swede. You are the GM, after all. Nothing says you must be a smart one. Oh to be Eddie Johnston for one single day in 1990...
Anyway, what say you, PantherNation? If given the opportunity to run your club for 24 hours, who and what would be on your radar? Anyone you've been pining to dump? Or clamoring to acquire? Perhaps right that ultimate of wrongs and get Brani Mezei back in the fold?


  1. I would dump Stephen Weiss for 6 pack of Molson Canadien. The first bidder that's not in first place gets him. Maybe the Blue Jackets so he could join his old friend Krissy Huselius.
    Those 2 girls would have a great time playing for Hitch!

    Trade Jay to Anaheim for Corey Perry, Chris Pronger and a draft pick.

    Trade Olesz and Horton to Edmonton for Ales Hemsky, Sam Gagner and a draft pick.

    Release Ville Peltonen.
    Trade Radek Dvorak and Brett McLean to Buffalo for Max Afinogenov ( he needs a change of scenery) and a draft pick.
    There I have pretty much rid the team of the mistakes that JM has provided us with.
    I would keep Zednik for sentimental reasons.

  2. I'm intrigued by the Anaheim angle, although our chances for getting "wifed" are pretty strong.

  3. Pretty interesting post. While I dont exactly know who is on the market, I do know we have to make a Pavel Bure-esque trade.

    While it may not insure a playoff spot this year, it would atleast spark some excitement in the area with the fairweather fans and possibly some goals in the games.

    So I am all for dumping Boumeester and Weiss and picking up maybe Gaboric and another emerging player off the Wild or a draft pick.

  4. nice post and thanks for sharing....

    The best place for the best ENTERTAINMENT
