Here's a rundown of what they talked about, after some small talk about fishing:

Perspective of lockout when he was an agent: different time now, fighting against salary cap then, trying to do what's best for game then and now.

Window of opportunity, a year could be gone: hopeful that's not the case, looking forward to get going. Miss working hard in market, have a good team, not able to do that now but have to look at bigger picture.

Positive having no one over in Europe now: agrees its a +, some concerns for those that do, injuries/insurance, medical/rink standard not the same as NHL, some risk involved, like with Nash getting injured.

ESPN 'Broke' documentary, how does it apply to hockey players: lesser extent in hockey compared to NFL/NBA, he's hopeful players get good advice and he'd recommend young players let him help invest rather than spend on 'friends' that come out of the woodwork.

1972, what do you remember as a 13 year old: not tarnished because of Eagleson, was a great experience watching and great way to start high school.



Not a lot new in this one, with the lockout they're starting to run out of good topics. No idea why they didn't ask more about the Wolves though and what he'd seen of our prospects so far.

That pretty much sums it up. He and all his staff are in Chicago watching training camp, why he doesn't speak about standouts surprises me.

Uh, you do realize I already put it in the original post right? You don't need to post it again.

It's not like we don't already have Jensen and Grenier over there, although it's a little different as they planned to regardless of a lockout. Hadn't heard anything about Hansen though, who's the source?

When they got to the end, and BMac said, "Just one more question for you," I was thinking why hasn't he asked about any progress at the Wolves training camp or anything related to that?

Weak, weak interview; poor effort by the hosts. If there is nothing more to say about the lockout then at lest get some goods on the Wolves. I want to know who came into camp jacked and who is looking like they're coming off the Wellwood program.

No worries, I just assumed you would have at least skimmed the OP before commenting.

God alright buddy I'm sorry I didnt frickin skim ur post. The last time a Gillis 1040 interview was on here the OP didn't have the audio clip, I wasn't doing it for you I was doing it for those who like to hear him say it for himself rather than a condensed overview of the interview.

I'm more annoyed at you being off topic and spamming the thread. Apparently me saying, "No worries," in my reply wasn't enough to keep from upsetting people.

There is a hush on player related speach when speaking to the media. Probably just playing it safe by saying nothing at all about anyone. Too easy to get tricked, the media hounds are waitiing to pounce on anything these days.

Well, not really. In previous radio interviews (after the lockout) he's talked about the Edler and Burrows negotiations as well as having Jensen in Sweden, Kassian's off-season, Tanev in the AHL, Kesler's diving and what's up with Luongo.

There's no reason why he can't speak about a player, they just aren't supposed to speak to the players. They're in Chicago to speak with the Wolves coaches and observe their play.
