A while ago I had a thread with the same title saying that this summer we would have a great opportunity to load up our team with talent for now and for the future. I made a checklist of To Dos for Gillis. If he accomplished them we would surely become a feared contender once again

The point of this is to see how he has done so far and analyze what continues to go wrong with this organization

To Do

1.sign Cory- check. The fact that this happened before the deadline is huge and speaks volumes about the two way trust existing between ginger and the Canucks. Also a testament to Schneids character that he didn't put our nuts in a vice and wait for a six mill offer sheet

-i was surprised to hear that cory signed with us before testing the offer sheet market. he must have talked to luongo who said they he wants out and the net is his

2. Trade Luongo- obviously the jury is out, but I have a sinking feeling we are going to get ripped off like we did in the Hodgson trade

-gillis has managed this luongo fiasco poorly. should have been dealt before all the drama started at the draft. they should have had a contingency plan in place for trading luongo to a team before luongo announced it publicaly.

3. Sign Schultz

Epic fail here, he was ours to lose, and we lost him. Gillis messed this up bad, worse than letting Erhoff go (who we noticeable missed last yr)

He told Schultz he was not going to guarantee him anything- a noble strategy but very very very stupid, obviously this kid wants to jump right in and be given a chance to show what he can do. Hd doesn't want to go to the AHL for an ice age like all our other prospects

Gillis failed here, big time, a bc kid who loved the canucks, what a mess

-gillis should have had it. i hope gillis hasn't created an environment where players don't want to play here because of the way he threw hodgson under the bus.

4. Resign the core

Resign Raymond and let Salo go?

Wow, just wow, would rather have given Salo 2 yrs then resign Raymond WTF gillis, let's be honest here, who is more useful?

Fail

-totally agree. this makes no sense.

6. UFAs

Garrison - gillis went boom or bust here, nuts in a vice after yzerman overpaid like he did with ohlund

-i hope this doesn't turn out to be another ballard scenario. the "florida effect"

Doan would be nice- ANYONE else feel like he is ours to lose and Gillis will find a way to do it?

Not a saviour but would help our team immensely

-doan would help a lot of our holes offensively.

Why are the Canucks such a travesty? They struggle to make logical moves from Burke to Nonis to Gillis- not much progress

-gillis has yet to change the core since he arrived. not his troops. added hamhuis who wanted home, thats it.

Wouldn't it be nice up be able to offer Coho in a deal right now???To bad we played that chip already and instead of getting a sure thing back, Gillis takes a big risk

-kassian deal was high risk. bad timing at the very least.

Use to think Gillis was a genius, this summer Gillis looks to have gone, how shall we put it Kirk Lazirus?

-gillis has a tendency to smoke grass in the summer. (steve bernier, then 20 mill to sundin, then SOB, ballard and sturm. he can't get anything right lately

"Full Retard"

Let the pros do their job.

You are not a pro.

We just finished first overall, 2 years in a row, and went to game 7 of the stanley cup final two years ago.

It's just a game, and realistically, as long as we get to the playoffs on the reg, it will keep us entertained.

People with high expectations that feel the need to criticize Gillis and his every move, need to look at their own lives and start making IT better, because they are clearly in need of something that hockey cannot provide.
