MG should be on thin ice...

This is not a video game, if teams aren't willing to trade a top 6 forward in exchange for Luongo then we won't get a top 6 forward in exchange for Luongo. Which is probably the reason why he hasn't been traded yet.

Gillis wanst here when those guys were drafted but he has kept them as Canucks and has given them a great opportunity to become the best they can be.

Doesn't matter who the gm was. Both guys wanted to come home.

Regarding shultz... I think Gillis failed big time. Didn't say he's a failure overall. Just overrated if u ask me.

At the end of the day... the BEST canucks were NOT acquired by him.

I'm talking about eddi burr kes twinz lui schneids kb3...

He hasn't drafted too well either... hopefully his recent picks pan out. Nonis and Burke have drafted our best players or in burrows case developed him.

Gillis is just as over rated as Brian Burke when he took over the ducks. Ducks already had the pieces in place to win the cup.. burky made a couple deals and was hailed as all mighty.

Same as mg... except his team didn't win the cup. All theessential pieces where in place for mg to succeed

Gillis has had some good FA signings but as far as trades go, there have been more bad than good ones.

CDUBUYA,finally the voice of reason speaks.

Noted are the words of one Mikael Samuelsson,the most decent second liner this MGGM team has had and was an integral member of the Canuck's Swedish family:

"I liked it a lot in Florida, but it was tough leaving the Sedins, Edler and the other guys up in Vancouver. I didn’t think very highly of management, so in that way I didn’t mind."

It's funny when people say that coho and grabner had no place on team when in reality they were never given a chance.

I remember watching countless times Grabner would just rocket past defensemen for breakaways when they were already in position yet he still blew right past them over the blueline with his crazy skating.

CoHo in limited minutes was scoring well and developing nicely and then gets traded for Kassian who is no where near where Coho was in terms of adapting and fitting in.

IMO I would rather have COHO and Grabner right now because our Depth on D is great even without Ballard and Kassian does nothing for us.

We need those guys.

In the end though everything that happened definitely happened and I have come to terms with it all and really don't care long as the Canucks ice a playoff team and make a good run.

I approve of this thread.

It's about time CDC becomes critical again.

I can see a bad Luongo trade, and no playoffs/early exit being AV or Gillis' time to go.

People keep saying Coho was a bad draft pick. Why? He developed under our system (and had some help from offensively-weighted zone starts) to become someone we could trade and get something significant in return. Kass is already looking like a much better long-term investment too. That's a good pick.

As for Grabner: he stunk here. He stunk in Florida. He got put on waivers and got a wake up call. He said so himself. What more is there to say?

I have/had no gripes against the kid, I just don't see him as being the second coming of Wayne Crosby or Sidney Gretzky.

I don't remember anyone comparing him to Crosby or even saying he'll be anywhere near as good...

I remember people saying he'll be good in general though, is that what you're talking about?
