Laurence Gilman on CKNW

113 posts in this topic

Laurence Gilman was just on CKNW with Pratt. Didn't catch it all.

All I got was

- In no rush to do anything (per usual)

- Doan appeared to care more about winning a cup, rather than money "That's all he cares about, he made that clear."

- Then Aquilini stressed to him that's all he cares about too

- The dinner was Shane, his wife, Gillis, Gilman and Aquilini

- 30mill at 4 years would be a deal breaker for Canucks

- Gillis is in discussion with several teams on Lu, we won't be rushed.

i didn't catch it either.... my guess is that he just avoided questions about Doan or Arnott

In the Shane doan thread:

Gillman says: that a 4 year 30 Million would indeed be a deal breaker.

Gillman said: Doan and wife on a fact finding stage of their big decision. Money is important but winning slightly more.

Gillman on CKNW right now: says Doan dinner went well and he really wants to win the cup.

Good to know dinner 'went well' i suppose.

Hopefully there's some truth to that Arnott rumour, and that Doan looks at it favourably as well.

I wonder if maybe they were talking about what kind of lineup he'd be coming into if he joined the Nucks. Could it have prompted Gillis to go in on Arnott possibly to show Doan that want to surround him with character guys and other vets?

Just thinking out loud.

If we could sign Arnott, Doan and Mattias/Bjugstad. Or 2 out of the 3. The size and grit on our team just grew exponentially. That would be a great team to support the 1st lines smaller size.

If he wants to win the Cup, we give him the best chance as long as Kesler isn't flopping all over the ice.

Gilman: We don't feel pressure to do anything at this point

Gilman on Lui: "Mike is in discussion with several teams.. we won't be rushed."

Pratt: Would 30mill at 4 years be a deal breaker? Gilman: Yes

Gilman: Impression I got is winning is more important to him than money

Then Aquilini stressed to him that's all he cares about too

Gilman on how important winning a Cup is to Doan: "That's all he cares about, he made that clear."

Gilman on Doan meeting: It was Shane, his wife, Gillis, Gilman and Aquilini

Another take of the interview from a guy : @taj1944

I find it funny when people say this specifically about Kesler. What about Burrows? He dives just as much but nobody ever mentions that, do they?

What the hell is everybody talking about Kes isnt a flopper, he's just playing by the new NHL rules. If you're not cheating, you're not trying. In fact any players who refuse to flop should be traded instantly. Last two cup champs Boston and L.A. Both of them were World Class Divers and Whiners. Thats how you win now.
