you were... happy when you thought Brian Burke was one of them?

sry, I would stay away from Burke with a 10 feet pole

Sedins, JVR trade and the drafting of Kesler.

Those are biggggg winners.

I'm not sure he fits with the,"Someone from a winning organization", part of what Linden is looking for.

Trev will pick the best candidate for this position. He's giving the media a bit of fodder right now. What exactly does "winning organization" mean? People need to understand that Trev doesn't just need a good GM, he needs a guy that's going to stay subordinate to him in the hockey ops structure. The last thing we want here is something resembling a Lafontaine/Murray fiasco.

Benning is a great candidate, but he's not going to be available until after the draft according to news outlets. Unless we can get the B's to change their stance on that a little bit, we're not going to be able to get him over here.

What other candidates are there from so-called "winning organization" and what is your definition of a winning organization?
