Brian Burke

He turned this team from bottom feeders to actual contenders. He made hockey exciting in Vancouver and increased attendance huge.

Gillis had a long way to go before he will be considered the best

I don't think MG has made any great moves. Burke got the Sedins, Naslund, Bertuzzi, Nonis got us Luongo. These were big moves that changed this team for the better.

MG signed a few guys and re-signed. Going after and signing Hamhuis was nothing special because it was a no brainer and was the best d-man available at the time and had offers from many teams.

GM MG because he has consistently got our core players, and then some, to buy into our team and sign for much less than their market value--a rarity in this league. That alone IMO speaks volumes for how good he is.

And saying Gillis signed our guys below market value, I think that says more about our players than it does Gillis.

Gillis got us Hamhuis, Erhoff, lappy, Manny, higgins. signed Torres

Without those guys we do not go to the cup. Erhoff had a special season, was phenomenal against Chicago and Nashville until his shoulder got wrecked. Lappy was the quintessential 3rd line center. Torres took out seabrook and dislocated Thornton's shoulder.

Gillis resigned the sedins to bargain basement contracts
