What Has Gillis Really Done For This Franchise?

235 posts in this topic

Gillis getting the executive of the year last season was the biggest joke I have ever seen.

Lets recap Gillis's major contributuons so far.

Good

-Trading for Ehrhoff.

-Signing of Hamhuis.

-Trading for Higgins and LaPierre

-Re-Signing of Burrows at a discount.

-Signing of Tanev

Negative

-Re-Signing of Luongo to longterm contract after his first playoff meltdown against Chicago

-Trading Of Michael Grabner (and hence commitment to Mason Raymond) and a first round Pick(Howden) for a Ballard and his bad contract

-Trading for David Booth and his bad contract

-Trading Cody Hodgson/Sulzer for Zack Kassian/Grags.

-Signing of Marco Sturm

-Not attempting to re-sign Willie Mitchell who you almost certainly would have re-signed here at a discount if the Canucks should any interest in him.

-not one of his draft picks is playing in the NHL besides Cody Hodgson.

-signing of Mats Sundin

-trading a 2nd round pick for Steve Bernier

-trading a 3rd round pick for Andrew Alberts

Why does the signing of Marco Sturm matter? he was gone before he hit the golf course.

And would you really re-sign Mitchell after having a severe concussion to at least 2 years ( since MG tried to sign him for 1 year) with the risk that one more hit to the head could be the end for him?

"-not one of his draft picks is playing in the NHL besides Cody Hodgson."

How does this measure the amount of success/failure Gillis is as a GM? was he around for 10 years?

This is one of the most biassed OP I have ever seen.

I am no longer a Gillis supporter and want him run out of town. Get the **** out of here.

Can't wait to see his ass get canned.

-Grabner has not been nearly as good this year.

-Booth, while he has been streaky, is still better than Sturm and Samuelsson.

-signing Sturm was a bad move, but we got Booth out of it (see above).

-3rd round pick for Alberts isn't necessarily bad

-you forgot to mention the trade for Pahlsson

-Mats Sundin was hugely overpaid, but did actually help our team. We probably wouldn't have done anything else with the money anyways.

He has also signed many key players to discounted contracts. I don't blame Gillis at all for this situation. He built a good team. It's players and coaching staff who didn't do their jobs.

Previous GMs created a team that took us to the SCF, what else?

Grabner was so fun to watch too. Think of what they could have got for Grabs had they waited until he scored 30 and then traded him.

I stopped reading once you said trading for Booth was bad.
