Gillis's final push to put this team over the top.

If he doesn't do something to upgrade our top 6, we will have trouble going far.

It seems like he's stuck between adding pieces to put us over the top, and saving assets to build for the future. He has to either do one or the other, because trying to do both is a half ass effort and won't help either cause.

Well these are the areas we need to address IMO:

- Bottom 6, LH guy who can take big draws, is good defensively and can kill penalties.
- A 2nd/3rd line center (for the third line) a guy who is a solid two way guy, can contribute offensively but is solid defensively.

Hopefully he would fill those holes.

...will be seen by hockey pundits in late June as the key time that GM MG pulled the trigger on major trades that finally gave the Canucks their first Stanley Cup!

Disappointing.

Partially due to MG not wanting to make a bold move. But also the fact that's it's a shortened season, therefore there will be fewer sellers by the deadline.

A shock to everyone. A shock if the Canucks do nothing, or a shock if they pull a big move in acquisition. You decide, either way it'll be some form of a shock.

What we need to do:

Trade a goaltender for a top 6 forward who can play with the twins and score consistently. I'm talkin' super star status, not washed up or injury prone.

Shake up the Defense. Trade a guy like Ballard or Beiksa for a new defensemen. There seems to be a big hole in our defence now which Salo used to fill.


What Gillis will probably do:

Stand pat and make no trades or shuffle some 4th liners around which will have no significant impact on the teams playoff successl.

I have a feeling something big will happen. A move that would put us over the top.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Actually it's just the one hole - the guy who can do both of those things. However, if we could unload Garrison for a steady, top-4 RH dman, it would be a huge bonus.

Playoff lineup:

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian
Higgins-Kesler-Burrows (shutdown line)
Booth/Raymond-Big, LH C-Hansen
Raymond/Booth-Lappy-Pinnizotto

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-RH dman
Ballard/Garrison-Tanev

He's got a chance to give us a cup this year. Let's see if he has the kahones to to make the deal. I just dono if he can make that deal that gives us a back up tender legit shutdown right handed D man and a guy who can create goals by himself and or be a left handed faceoff guy.

Yeah although players that are LH and can play a solid two way game aren't easy to find, quality ones that is, I think it would be cheaper to get both separately but all together would be nice aswell.

Scared.

I think MG is scared to make any more moves because a lot of his moves have not panned out. Now think about being the GM that trades away the best goaltender (a future HOF'er) the organization has ever had. I know I'd be shakin in my boots.
