Default A Good Start

If this is true, they are the first two good steps on getting this ship righted. If this does pan out, they need to get a new GM in here quickly. I would think Vinik has been contemplating this for a while and hopefully has some replacements in mind. Too much going on between now and the draft to not have a GM in place.

Huge props to Vinik for getting this done this fast. He clearly recognizes a change is needed from the beginning of the 10-11 season.

I don't know if its possible, but here is my GM nomination. I think some of you have mentioned him as well in other threads.

Key is he handles the draft. They get players seemingly from nowhere and they turn into stars.

Vinik is obviously a morning person. Takes care of business early. I also am impressed he's not waiting around. The season is not 24 hours over and Vinik is doing what needs to be done right away. I like that.
