Also I wonder if a weak Gm like Gillis has the balls to overpay to strengthen the D for the future.

Overpay Hedman = Balls
Overpay Sundin = Stupid

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

The D is the missing link,especially when or if you gut the heart of Vancouver's goaltending.

Schneider is a nice story but Luo is the moneymaker and has been for his tenure in Vancouver.

Yep, our D core sucks. We've got 2 guys in our top 4 that have no clue how to even play defence. Ridiculous.

who heard lu request a trade?....or is someone just reading something that may not even be there....gillis has said, that he hasn't made any decisions yet......i believe they have made a decision on who to keep, but, until gillis makes that official, i won't believe a word of the stories going around....

either Lu really does want out or they are putting on a big show to boost Cory's trade value. teams will offer more for Cory then Lu and even more if they think they can not get him . but either way no matter what goalie stays we need to get a little better on our top D and a legit top 6 forward.

It's been tweeted by several analysts. I think that's as official as it gets. Gillis never tells anyone anything so following him would be a waste of time.

You speak as if he owes the fans something ???

Players play for themselves, their family, and their team mates. You as a fan pay to watch them. If I were Lou I would want out of this market too.

what i want to know is how the hell does NICK KYPREOS, of all people, knows what happens in a meeting between the general manager and roberto luongo... and if this did in fact happen, who is the idiot sitting in on luongo's end of the year meeting spilling the beans to nick freaking kypreos?

sounds like kypreos trying to build some rep - because nobody west of toronto beleives a thing that moron says.

Many people in Vancouver love Luonog, also so many hate him so much. He wants to leave, just like Cody.

I guess the stress and pressure of being in a hockey potboiler city like Vancouver got to him.
It only takes one hard fought series to make a rivalry

Wait, you're saying you would sympathize better if we had better D-men? :frantic:
