Theorizing that one could time travel within their own lifetime, Edmonton Fans stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator, and vanished.

They awoke to find himself trapped in Rexall Place, facing mirror images that were not their own, and driven by an unknown force to change the Oilers for the better. Their only guide on this journey is Desjardins; an stathead from their own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Oiler Fans can see and hear. And so, the Edmonton Fans find themselves leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that their next leap, will be the leap to a cup.

When things are the most bleak, a man tends to retreat to the corners of his mind.  Pain and misery quite often lead men to creative bursts and that is the platform I present to you today.  The Oilers are a terrible team and talking about the nuances in the level of awfulness is getting to be a bit tedious and is sapping the collective creativity of the Copper & Blue.  I have no idea how Islanders fans put up with this for so long.

So the excercise is simple.  You step into the Quantum accelerator and vanish.  You are transported to Rexall Place and upon opening the executive washroom, you face the mirror image of Steve Tambellini.  "Oh Boy", indeed.  The first thing you do after you check your pulse to make sure that you have been among the living all of this time is...

Name the single move that you make first and ONLY one move.  We don't want a litany of trades and signings.  It can be a trade, waiving someone, a signing, a front office move, it doesn't matter.  We want to hear the first step you're going to take on this journey of a thousand miles.

Oh, and "fire myself" is not acceptable.
