The Summer of Gillis

Recommended Posts

you want to pay salo 3.75 for 2 years when we don't even know if he'll end up playing next year?

great defenceman but if hes only playing 40 games.. for 4 mill.. ya.. right.

BTW why do you keep saying the "jury is still out" but say we get ripped off after trading a player who didn't want to be here (Hodgson) for a developing player in Kassian. If you're saying we were ripped off because Kassian didn't develop like the seasons change then give your head a shake. Gillis moved Hodgson for a player he believes has huge potential. That's a much better deal then trading him for a quick fix which may or may not win you a cup.

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

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

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

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

6. UFAs

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

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

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

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

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

"Full Retard"

Hodgson trade is not a rip off. Hodgson was pretty ice cold in Buffalo and Kassian is a year younger, therefore a year behind in progression. WAY too early to give a verdict on that.

Schultz was never ours to lose, that was just media speculation. Thousands of fans got overexcited at the chance of him coming here and made it seem like a sure thing. He obviously wants to play with young up and coming players like himself.

he can not change what other GMs want or need in return for these magic gaping hole fillers.... you must be in the "sign Suter, trade half the team for Weber, trade Lu for Cap space, trade for the Number One Pick with some of our crappy prospects we don't want or need + Ballard and a 5th...draft the next great one.. Fire AV, Win the next 8 Stanley Cups its a guarantee "...Camp..

Good job you look a fool......

Signing Raymond was a better plan than salo.

Scheid is signed, so woot

Lou hasn't been traded yet, your sinking feeling means nothing

You can't make Schultz sign here. Your belief that he was ours to lose is based on nothing but your own hope and clever media tactics to build hype

Thin ufa market this year, he did well so far and summer ain't over...seems a bit premature to judge

Your whole post is confrontational and smells of a troll wrapped up in hodgson love.

I think the last two words of your post may be more aptly applied to someone else....not Gillis.

Exactly, and besides, Hodgson's character was in question. Don't need trouble in the dressing room, or tying up all the GM's time with your demands. Did you naysayers know that they only played Hodgson in desirable situations to make him look good so that we can trade him? The guy is no superstar.

If you are gonna post a one liber that this is a stupid thread, just hold off, I appreciate all the counter points and am interested in what CDC has to say. Let's keep the insults to a minimum, it just reflects poorly on yourselves
