Mike Gillis, the only GM who will take a team to back to back presidents trophy and a Stanley Cup Final run who will get flamed by a bunch of dumb Canuck fans who insist on doing something on July 1.

I am not a bandwagoneer. I am just pessimistic. 40 years without a cup will do that to any normal fan. So please, stop and think before labeling someone a bandwagoneer.

11 million in salary, and i can almost gaurantee that gillis won't make a push for a top 6. at the most i could see us picking up a 3rd line centre that NOBODY predicted or mentioned, and a 5th/6th d-man nobody has ever heard of.

Quote yourself 4 hours into free agency? What exactly did you call? And shame on whoever thumbs up your post

better on offence than on defense, and his shot sucks? how bad is his defense? i'd rather suit up Connauton, at least his shot is killer.

I don't know what you guys are talking about.
I for one would be thrilled to land ourselves a career point per game defenceman.

Dfense is the Canucks strongest position. MG is not going to go out and sign top 6 Dmen. Any Dman he signs would be depth and someone who could fill in top 6 in case of injuries.

MG will spend his available cap space on forwards so don't be disappointed with Baranka rumor

I don't know how you guys can all jump on MG and complain about a guy that we haven't even signed and know nothing about, he might be a solid depth addition, or maybe it is just for the Wolves, we know nothing right now.

Edit: Also didn't realize the bump, thanks Mr.Reputable.

Woo depth. Just what we needed. Clearly plugging players into the third, 4th, and bottom pairings of defense are what this team needs. Our core group of high end is totally enough. Oh wait.

Given the Barker news, and now this Baranka guy, I'm guessing AV put a call in to Gillis and asked for a favour. He was getting really lonely without Rome, and none of the other guys could really cut it, so he needs a new, old, depth defensemen to fall in love with all over again.

I'm getting tired of the moneyball approach.


Frack, you said it brother. Stop giving AV options. Pencil players into actual spots ... like second line RW for instance.

I find it funny that so much hate over a rumour that wasn't even confirmed and all it said was he inquired and the board jumps on him with so much hate like it was a done deal.

Not looking forward to seeing Justin Shultz' 1st game in Vancan... we can only hope that Garrison doesn't turn out to be Booth 2.0

Gillis and his moneyball approach haven't had much success.
