  1. 1. Is Mike Gillis' lack of signing players at the FA deadline:

    • A sign that he will be making a major trade?
      95
    • A sign that he is an absolute moron and so are the Aquilinis?
      55

So many teams in the league are very busy today. However the Canucks are not one of them.

Deals like Carkner, Parros, Burish, Parenteau, and Tootoo are now gone to other teams.

Even worse, Sami Salo, a Canuck for over ten years has been signed in Tampa.

This makes me think that Gillis may have something larger up his sleeve. Possibly a play for one of the big free agents. Even so it would have been a great idea to shore up size issues with Carkner and Parros.

The Canucks are a good team. By no means great. The need for grit and toughness could have been answered for cheap today, but wasn't.

Hopefully Gillis has something up his sleeve. Otherwise if he expects to get anywhere near the post season with the team from last year, minus Salo, he's truly stupid.

The Canucks, the way they are now, are average, and without any major shake-up will be doing a slow parade towards mediocrity in this league.

They were lucky to get the President's Trophy playing in what was the weakest division in the league. After today it will be much harder to do such things.

If we go into October with the same group, I hope Gillis is canned

I hope we can get 2 or 3 solid Defencemen. Defense is the most important thing right now.

I have a feeling that Vancouver is not a desirable place for UFA's and RFA's, therefore making Gillis's job twice as hard as it should be. Hope he can get something done.

Well, Carkner, Parros and Burish are not sexy and are not needed here. But there are definitely a few players he could have probably went for AND signed but clearly didn't.

If he sign's Alex Semin and gets an absolute steal for Luongo then I will forgive him for not signing anyone.

Fail.

If Gillis is a moron than you people working at the _____ are a _____?

It's the first day of free agency. I don't want to overpay.

So relax until our opening lineup is announced.

Im pretty disappointed right now but its only the first day in free agency, a lot of players got way over payed but a few i thought were signed to decent deals. We'll have to wait and see what trades Gillis can pull off. Maybe his master plan is to let everyone spend like crazy and if the cap actually goes down from the new CBA he'll be laughing doing Ehrhoff trades left and right.

There's a whole lot of time to be patient and see what the market dictates for their plans.

Ive mentioned before, the Lu goaltending situation is still a non issue, and was waiting on Salo's staus.

That being said, it is only natural that some moves will be made for the blueline very soon.
