I'm really getting excited now! The lockout is over, the season is ready to start, and now Gillis has a golden chance to bring back some much needed front office experience to get us a Cup. I hope Gillis hurries up and snaps Burke up before someone else does!!! :)

So... the Canucks get Burke back in the Luongo deal? :lol:

Seriously though, what is it that you think the Canucks' front-office lacks that Burke could bring to the table?

As far as I am concerned, other teams can have him.

Honestly I wouldn't mind the guy, I wouldn't want him as a decsion maker but for where our team is he could really help.

I don't think MG and BB have the greatest relationship (Not that It think they don't like each other) And MG is happy with Gilman and Henning to I don't see it as realistic but I wouldn't mind it.

What exactly is wrong with the Canucks' front office? Lacking a willingness to part with numerous first round draft picks?
  • 5

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

Senior Advisor just means he's been fired but they still have to pay him.

Credit where credit is due. Burke drafted the Sedins in a spectacular manner.

They would have to throw in half a dozen first rounders to get us to take Burke.
