now I don't know if Gillis meant a replacement for Kesler will be here soon or Kesler himself but either way it is definately note worthy

@FarhanLaljiTSN: Gillis on the battle to replace Kesler, "The spot isn't going to be vacant for a very long time" #canucks

Unless the plan was to start the season without a 2nd line center, this isn't news. Obviously, someone has to be pencilled in within the next ferw days to prepare for the season in 1 week!!

Either someone is impressing in camp right off the hop, or a deal is in the works, maybe.

It definitely sounds better than if gillis had said, "I have no idea and I hope it works out..."

That being said, gillis is clearly involved in a trade for claude giroux or jamie benn ;) /sarcasm

Wow, that is very interesting, I predict a miracle trade where MG just obliterates the other team and we have a solid top 6 until Kesler gets back then when he does we will have a stacked top 9.

If Gillis is battling to replace Kesler than obviously it is a trade. If someone is impressing in camp than it would be AV's problem to find a relacement. But if Gillis is,(which he is), finding a replacement, then a deal is almost done maybe for Lu or someone esle is getting shipped out. Great News.

Ben Kuzma@benkuzma
Gillis on Kesler: "Ryan has had a good three weeks. He's a competitor and wants to play. I look at these things (return) optimistically." - we may not be trading to get someone they may just play around with personnel while he is off

This quote could mean anything......it does not indicate it is a trade. It could be that kesler will return earlier but healthy.......or Schroeder or someone will take the spot

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

I don't know. I feel like we have all been so obsessed with the Luongo trade we didn't even think MG may have another trade in the works.

Not saying it'll happen, but there are some very impressive RFA's that are making life hard for their GMs.

Do you know what this means? We're not going to start the season without a second-line center, after all! Thank goodness, I thought we might just lose every face-off.

The suggestion is he's working hard to get healthy again so he can be back playing, versus some unsaid upcoming deal. Not much in it other than that.

Who knows what will happen. It might be Stephen Weiss taking his place temporarily with Luongo being traded to FLA.

Nahhh...It will be Weiss or bust for Gillis. He is thinking outside of the box. Besides, Bozak won't fetch Luongo unless TO added Reilly, Kadri and a 1st.
