Game of Thrones is officially over, Winter has come and gone, the dispute over the Iron Throne has been resolved and fans are divided over the outcome. But what if the Anaheim Ducks were in Westeros? Who would be in power? Who would be their Small Council?
Game of Thrones is a cultural phenomenon and there is no shortage of websites (including on FanSided ) and you can even make your own Small Council with characters from the world of Westeros here. But today I want to take a look at something equally near and dear to my heart as Game of Thrones and build a small council around the Anaheim Ducks.
Ryan Getzlaf The King
In Westeros, the King rules the 7 Kingdoms, they are the most powerful person in the country and is usually a battle-tested leader who (is supposed to) balance what is right, and what is “right” and what benefits the masses
Ryan Getzlaf is the logical choice, he’s been through battles, he’s waged war against the greatest warriors of other teams for over a decade. There’s no better leader on the Ducks than Getzlaf and he has earned his spot on “The Iron Throne”
Corey Perry Hand of the King
The Hand of the King is the King’s “right-hand man” he’s the person who represents the King any absence of the King, he’s usually a good friend of the King and is relied upon to be the most trusted confidant for the King.
Is there really any other option than Corey Perry? Perry has been referred to as Getzlaf’s “Twin” as they’ve been linked and nigh-inseparable since their draft year back in 2003. Perry is one of Getzlaf’s best friends, he often represents the team as an Alternate Captain and if Getzlaf were leading the 7 Kingdoms, I can’t imagine a world where Corey Perry wasn’t right by his side.
