with the way the canucks are playing right now it is not hard to imagine that if things dont turn around

quickly then Gillis might be forced into making a big change to the team. now off the top of my head

there are really only two things the canucks could do that would make a significant enough impact:


1) trade one of their goaltenders

or

2) a coaching change


my question to you guys is what do you think is more likely to happen if the mediocre play continues.

my guess would be a coaching change, and someone i would consider for av's replacment is lindy ruff.

Sadly I am of the opinion that nothing will change other than picking up a 4th liner or two at the deadline.

Neither. And it's sad. We sell out every game, why would there be a change?

How many times does a hot goalie beat us? Weren't we supposed to have the best goalies?

I don't think Gillis has been with it this year and last. I remember he said he'd retire earlier than not; perhaps he will go first? Otherwise no changes happening, and if so look for dumb trade like Cody for kas type idea

I was thinking more like Sammy Pahlsson.....Gillis is starting to look like a lame duck GM. Does he want AV to outlast him?

We just lost to what-was the crappiest team in the league. Now Florida is the worst team, with by far the worst goals against average. The Panthers GM will be making a play for Lu soon, and hopefully we'll get a piece or two to help get us back on track.

Your not going to win a Stanley Cup with Hansen, Higgins and Raymond as your second line. I think its flipping arrogant and ridiculous that Mike Gillis thinks you can win a Stanley Cup with that. You want to win a cup, the second line should be at least challenging the first line for points.

Meh probably not much, but I think there is a better chance of making a significant move this year than any previous year.

We want this team to play better so we can be confident going into the playoffs, this team hasn't shown any signs of a cup winner, and anyone expecting this team to flip a switch is delusional. It won't happen as we saw last year.

Trades eventually always happen.

This is how fools like Eklund stay in buisness by predicting the eventual obvious inevidability of all sports franchises..

Change.

Trading a goalie isn't going to bring back a better goalie. Or a star D or FW that another team isn't willing to trade.

All aspects of this team are struggling. Goaltending, defence, offence, special teams ..... It's not a matter of tweaking or filling holes. It's not a good time for Vancouver to trade.

If the key players on the team aren't being utilized effectively in the regular season, why would anyone believe they will in the playoffs?

How long should we be patient for? Half the season is finished and this team doesn't look like its even close to contending.

I chose option 3, Gillis won't do anything.

We have the (correct me if I'm wrong) the highest cap % in the nhl in goaltending.... We will not... I repeat NOT win a cup without using our cap space well. One of our goalies has to go or the season is a wright off. The cap is so important in today's NHL. Fire AV as well, never liked him.

Lack-lustre performances will be continued throughout the year. Why? Because what does Aquillini care? He sells out every game. Playoffs inlcluded. He doesn't need a change. He won't fire MG, who in turn won't fire AV. Nothing will happen, expect to see more mediocrity to continue.
