Mike Gillis has no choice!

18 posts in this topic

Mike Gillis has completely painted himself into a corner! He cannot buyout Roberto as last year this time there were real deals on the table for Luongo and now there are none. He cannot buyout this amazing asset as the Canucks will get nothing in return. Just saving the Cap space is not enough. His only option is to repair the relationship with Roberto and deal Schnieder. Which actually will benefit the Canucks greater in the long run. Philly will jump all in for Schieder and Schnieder would be all over moving back east. The deal would have to occur between now and Sunday because it would include picks. Proposal:

TO PHILLY:

SCHNIEDER

TO VANCOUVER:

SIMMONDS

1ST (11TH OVERALL)

The fun would not stop there as M.G. has his eyes on the big Russian who many feel could be an elite powerforward in a couple of years. Next deal would be with Carolina.Proposal:

TO CAROLINA:

1ST(11TH OVERALL-AQUIRED FROM PHILLY)

BURROWS

TO VANCOUVER:

1ST(5TH OVERALL)

T.RUTUU

M.G. will have one more massive deal that he must, this one has Tort's all over it, Just to avoid the head to head battle that Bieksa and Tort's seem to be on. Proposal:

TO ANAHIEM:

BIEKSA

BOOTH

SCHROEDER

TO VANCOUVER:

B.RYAN

2ND(2013)

This is the most important 2 weeks of M.G's existence as the Canucks GM and if he thinks "standing Pat" is the answer or being patient or just doing nothing bold is acceptable then this will be his downfall. This window of opportunity comes seldomly and he needs to be proactive and listen and do the right thing. I'd rather go down swinging then just standing there striking out. Let's go Gillis make it happen and then you can take credit for a team you had a hand in building.

This line up becomes an instant Cup contender.

He always has a choice. He just keeps making the wrong one when it comes to goalies.

Conversationally speaking, Gillis has a tone of choices and or options. Regardless of what you, I or anyone else wants to believe.

That being said he certainly did mess the bed with Luongo. All he had to do after last years LA series was keep his mouth shut and shop Lou quietly and we wouldn't be in this mess.

Oh well.

Extremely debatable.

Both are pretty equal in terms of value, maybe an ever so slight edge to Burr.
