still shocked the team practically did NOTHING all season (other than Garrison in the summer of 2012!!! and Roy who they NEEDED at least 1 centerman) to improve this team heading into the playoffs....they are doomed in the 1st round. Perhaps it's the wake up they need to get a better product on the ice.

Raymond goes for free...Luongo's value in the summer will be worse off than before....and a weak UFA pool = yet another season of AV/Brown/Bowness and this team not taking cup contention seriously.

Roy is a significant acquisition.

Kesler is bound to come back

Sedin-Sedin-Roy-Burrows-Kesler-Hansen-Higgins-Raymond

Top 9 pretty much unmoveable, can't add a 4-5M plus top 9. Price for quality top 9 players was too high.

Can't add any significant D with 5 d-men making over 4M$.

Gillis is an offseason GM. Trade deadline usually means overpayment anyway.

Getting Kesler and Booth back for playoffs is better than receiving trades...

Im glad we improved the team without jeopardizing our future.

I'm very disappointed! The only player we acquired was Derek Roy??? IMO this guy is not gonna help this team win a cup! Watch him not produce and everyone starts bashing him! I'm sorry but this team is NOT going to make it very far in the playoffs if we even make it there.

They lost their season opener 4-1. Shouldn't you be writing them off already? I mean all those signings and only one run to show for it and their ace choked. :bigblush:

Although Lou is worth more, Nonis is an idiot for not picking him up at that price. Furthermore, it shows me that Nonis is not a great GM. He could have improved his team dramatically for the playoffs but didn't help his team by not taking that deal.

Gillis should've never come out and said that Luongo was the one going to be moved. I still believe that Schneider should be the guy dealt. At the very least, no one should've come out and said which one we were going to move.

If they decided to trade Schneider instead we probably could've gotten Sean Couturier out of Philadelphia, Brett Connolly out of Tampa Bay, Kadri/Schenn out of Toronto, Ryan Johansen out of Columbus and so on.

Fact: Roberto Luongo is still an exceptional goaltender
Fact: Barring some horrific injury, Luongo can still play in the NHL for another 6-7 years
Fact: Gillis could use those 6-7 years to use a draft pick to select a young goaltender than develop that goalie
Fact: A team built around Couturier, Corrado, Tanev, Kassian, a young goalie and Connauton(now traded to Dallas) could probably remain playoff competitive after the Sedins leave
Fact: This team needs to start giving the young guns a chance to play. Once these playoffs end, our window to the win the cup will have closed.

completely agree- if I am ownership- I fire him, he is the GM of the richest team in the league and he passed on an all-star for 2 seconds a barely NHL backup...wowsers...for all those who think Gillis is bad...Nonis is far far worse
