This is not a trade thread.. or a fire AV thread. This is about my team and my love of hockey.

I am asking Mike Gillis to please stand up to the NHL and their consistency in serving their players. As I am a student I cant afford much, but I will donate 20$ to Canucks place or to Mike Gillis's lost salary due to the fine he would receive. This mockery has gone on long enough

I have no problem with Edler being suspended or Hanson being suspended if it was the normal thing to do. But when players from other more NHL favoured organizations like Lucic's hit on Miller or Nashs high hit as of recent get brushed under table it really makes me reconsider my love for the game. I want equality, I want fairness. I need hockey in my life, it is what makes me go, but this has really gone to far. I feel like im watching WWE and everything is staged at some times. I want to believe its not anti Canucks or anti Canadian teams but it really is hard to think otherwise

Like I said, the suspension is warranted as a former goalie being run sucks and you have no ability to defend yourself at most times, yet the inconsistency of NHL and Shanahan in particular have really pissed me off.

I WILL DONATE $20 TO CANUCKS PLACE AND TO GILLIS'S SALARY IF YOU SPEAK UP AND FIGHT FOR THIS INJUSTICE. Pull a Rosa Parks. Its the only way for change. Thank you.

A Canucks and More so Hockey Fan.

It's time to strike back. Clinch a playoff spot and refuse to play in a road game during the regular season (preferably one on national TV) Make sure the league is aware of the reason behind this.

If you want Gillis to say what is truly on his mind, you might have to pay a little more than $20.

I might be able to help you with that, though. ;)

I'm sure Gillis will be eternally grateful for this staggering amount. Must be hard for him to put food on the table with such an insultingly low salary, so he will be ecstatic that a generous stranger has decided to help him turn his life around. Truly difficult to wrap my head around a number so large.

Classy of you to rip on the guy for the small amount when he clearly explained why he couldn't afford more in the same post.

I gaurantee you Gillis has voiced his frustration with the inconsistancy. However, the media isn't necissarily the most appropriate place to do so.

Just because you havn't seen him losing his mind doesn't mean he isn't behind the scenes with the league.

Wow really and give them even more reasons
the league and Media would have a riot with this one and spin it so hard that the nucks would be hated even more by fans, media, teams, players, CANADA, and the refs . But i would enjoy seeing it if it was like right after puck drop the team just stood there let them score and skate off the ice but i would never happen .

Yes. really. What other option does Gillis have to motivate the league and it's officials from behaving an a remotely acceptable manner?

And given the standard of officiating going on, I'm not so sure other teams' fans wouldn't appreciate the fact that someone finally took a stand.

You can tell that he's frustrated as hell. And I don't blame him. But him ripping on the league isn't going to help anybody. Gillis making a scene isn't going to change anything. And not that I care what other teams think, this would cement the Canucks=whiners thoughts in everyone's minds.

Everyone in the NHL is furious with the league right now. Managers, coaches and players have all called out the refereeing already and Lupul just blasted the league for getting suspended for a Rick Nash-like hit.

Everyone is aware, especially the league, of their inconsistency. Someone just needs to talk about how it's affecting the "integrity of the league" and they'll take notice. That's their one touchy subject that they don't like being attacked because it lowers them in comparison to the other big leagues around the world.

Right now there is little integrity in this league, someone just needs to say it and cop the fine.

It doesnt matter wether he makes a scene or not, we'll always be looked as whiners in the rest of the leauge eyes.

There was his chance to stand up for the team and he took the 'classy' route... as if it will change anything.

You say you're a student, so let's say I'm confident you're younger B)

May I suggest that you brace yourself for injustice in all aspects of your life - it's one of the few guarantees you have. Try not to take things too seriously - you need to pick your battles and be realistic.

Sports - I used to be a soccer die-hard fan. For years, I was able to tell you who scored every single goal in World Cup tournaments, and approximately when and how. I got tired of miserable refereeing (you think you have that in hockey? - think again), that included goals that were scored and not allowed because ... the referees did not see the ball cross the line. No video reviews. So believe it or not, hockey has been a breath of fresh air, although not perfect. It's all relative, you see.

Games are played by humans and refereed by humans, so they are intrinsically flawed. Moreover, there are many interests at play, some that you may never know about or understand. Enjoy your favorite sport one as much as you can and try to avoid heart attacks by finding ways to make fun of injustice. Share a laugh with your friends and you'll be fine.

Save your $20 and buy a stranger a couple of beers during a game. You'll feel much better.

The GMs/Owners as a collective unit should have a means to challenge the disciplinary actions of the NHL or lack thereof through an impartial arbitrator/regulator. Teams could challenge that the league is not properly protecting the players with its inconsistent disciplinary actions and something should be put in place/system to ensure the safety of the players are being properly and appropriately employed.

Part of me thinks this is indeed the right thing to do and to press on, but part of me so badly wants me for him to speak out like he did during the last Chicago series.

Everyone knows Shanny and the NHL have consistency issues, no one in the league wants to speak out.
