If Brendan Gaunce is tweeting today for the Canucks, then why in the hell do you think the Canucks are going to announce anything today? (other than Gaunce hates sushi)

Allen? Meh.

Really...wtf! Yay for Gillis signing career AHLs as our starting D for next year. An all rookie 3rd pairing...we're done!!!

Gillis, wake the "f" up and do something!!!! (i don't think we'd even land Sheldon Souray)

If we don't overpay, we don't get.

Maybe we don't want to get?

Don't we have a window still open? Last 2 free agency seasons and this last trade deadline it doesn't seem that Gillis thinks it is still open.... Kassian wasn't going to help us this last year....

Just by transactiona tgis the last year+..... GMMG thinks the window is closed???? Wtf? Really?

When is Gillis going to realize.


YOU HAVE TO PAY GOOD PLAYERS GOOD MONEY!

Not everyone takes a discount.


if this pace continues Gillis is going to have a really tough time explaining the day to all of our fans, Especially the Salo situation.

Mike Gillis , u better have a great plan.


Because he doesn't have his roster set within 5 hours of free agency our team is screwed for the entire 2012-2013 season. Strong logic is strong. Fire Gilis 1@#121!!!

That's really not a bad contract by the ducks at all. GJ.. where was Gillis in on this... At some point your going to have to pony up to sign a guy, im not saying a massive overpayment but your probably going to have to spend more than you initially though u were. We needed a guy like Allen.

You people do realize we only have 10 million in cap space, and 8+ million of that is going to Weber.


But we'll be shedding Lu's 5.3 salary so we'll have $15+ million

We've got enough cap to sign one of the big names.

And hopefully the other hole (either D or top 6) can be filled through a Luongo trade (if there is one).

No harm done here. Allen is not what we need. Weber-Suter -calibre is what we need to be targeting. And let our prospects take a spot too. Or then stop drafting.

If Florida is where Luongo ends up, one of Kulikov or Gudbranson could very well be part of the deal heading the other way.

I HOPE!

WHAT THE?!?!

Allen is not a soft defencemen, he is actually a pretty physical stay at home D-Man.

It seems as if Gillis is just content on doing nothing, right now I wouldn't even be surprised if we had both Luo and Schneids on the team throughout the whole year.

this really sad to watch FA not wanting to play in Vancouver, there is no way MG hasn't offered any of these guys contracts.his not that stupid, I am beginning to think they don't want to play here.

At first i was hoping we'd sign a FA D because i want Bjugstad to be a big piece if Lu goes to Florida. Looks like we'll be trying to get a D through a trade now though.

Everyone in this board is moronic. WE DIDN'T SIGN EVERY FREE AGENT, GILLIS SUCKS


We haven't signed ANY free agent, when clearly there are holes to be filled. Granted most of our needs will be filled via trade, but even Gillis himself said it's not about the money and he intends to spend to the cap. If it's not through free agency then obviously he's intending on adding salary via trade.

He's huge, but he's not physical. Did you watch the Canucks when he was on this team? He doesn't hit a lot, he rarely fights (when he does, he gets worked), and he's about as slow as they get

Allen is a giant oaf

Well, he's sticking to his word by following in Detroits footsteps, all the way down to not signing anybody...
