Welcome to a new feature here on Canucks Army and all sites on the Nation Network: What Would You Do Wednesday, where we put you, yes YOU, in charge of your own imaginary Vancouver Canucks. We'll present you with a different scenario each week, and you tell us how you'd solve it in the comments section below. Give props to the answers you do like and trash the ones you don't. Easy! So let's get started:

That Cole Cassels is having a fantastic 19-year old season is old news by now to Canucks fans. Vancouver's 3rd round pick in the 2013 NHL entry draft is currently 6th in the OHL in scoring with 12 goals and 27 assists in 22 games, but he'll be missing some significant time thanks to a suspension handed out this morning by the Ontario Hockey League.
Read past the jump for a look at Cassels' suspension, and how this affects his chances at making a World Junior Championships team.

Pictured: not Bo Horvat.
The New Jersey Devils are in town tonight, surely to join the rest of Vancouver in the celebration of the commencement of the glorious Bo Horvat era. It's a neat bit of synchronicity that the team Cory Schneider now carries is the one in town on the day Bo Horvat officially becomes a full-time NHL player, as he'll play his former team for the second time in Vancouver, and the first head-to-head with Horvat.
For a preview of tonight's game and a look at Vancouver's decision to keep Horvat with the big club, read past the jump.

Days after acquiring Will Acton from the Edmonton Oilers, GM Jim Benning went out and made that deal look like a veritable blockbuster by dealing Alex Mallet and a 3rd round pick in 2016 to the New York Islanders in exchange for 21-year old 6'4 defenseman Andrey Pedan.
I don't know a damn thing about Andrey Pedan, so join me after the jump where we'll find out all about the AHL version of Luca Sbisa that the Canucks seem to have acquired.
