Things are starting to look a bit thin on the right side, I have that feeling that Gillis struck out today on all of his potential targets, and will have to bring back Aaron Rome at a 1.75 million dollar salary.

At the moment all we have is:

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler -
Ballard - Tanev

I have doubts any of our prospects are able to make the jump to a regular position; but I don't understand why we didn't qualify Gragnani. I think Gillis missed the boat on this, as our depth on the back end is terrible.

I wonder if he thought that Schultz and Salo were guaranteed signings for Vancouver. Right now I don't see any signings available that are cost efficient; might as well bring back Rome because he knows the system.

It's a strange day when there's more than one poster wanting Rome back.

(Pretty please bring Rome back)

If that was true and if I was Romer I'd tell them to blow it out their a...

First, you weren't good enough for them and now they only want you back due to desperation.

this team is about 3 pieces away from being a legit contender again. Unfortunately those three pieces can only be obtained through trade or free agency. If gillis goes via the free agency route he will have to over pay someone...he cannot just sit back and not pay out of principle....if he goes by the trade route he will have to give up a prominent player on this team who is not named Luongo....Luongo will not fetch much in return because of his albatross of a contract.

Perpetual mediocrity coming up unless MG grabs some cahoonas and makes something happen....

I'm starting to hope that's the case.

Would be entertaining (to me) to see everyone reject MG for his moneyball approach.

he's looking like a good option now hahah

I honestly think Gillis has a trade coming outside of Luongo, I think he let Salo go cause he's working on bringing in another D man... I hope anyways cause our D needs someone to replace Salo.

Well I'm not turning on them. I just no longer have an emotional attachment to the team so I do not really care what happens.

Maybe we should have some feedback from players that the Canucks are trying to sign. Maybe see if there's a reason other than travel that they are not signing here.
