Mike Gillis meeting with media in NYC at 4 p.m. Wonder if anyone will ask his survival strategy if he trades Schneider instead of Luongo?

Wonder what it will be about?

Edited by Plum, 29 June 2013 - 11:01 AM.

Kevin Fiala will be a star.

Wonder why he's in NY? Maybe it's about the assistant coaching job?

Let me guess:

Nothing of actual value or consequence will be said by Gillis. The guy trolls us hard.

Interesting. How often does he call a press conference unless he has some pretty decent news?

Oh and he'll tell us ballard was moved for a 6th round pick and sock tape...

he needs a presser for that, since that's his big move before the draft

Stay tuned for more.

MG: Good afternoon everyone, today I want to talk about the process of trading, drafting and waiving players. These processes are ongoing and we have had discussions through the entire process. When you have a good plan in place, the processes take care of themselves and today, we are looking at changing the process of putting the team together that will be on the ice next year. See you after the draft.
I Love Lamp...

You want to be paid to be the captain,you take both the heat of the position in bad times and the accolades in good times:

Most surprising has been the revelation that Gillis feels a little persecuted in this market – that people have been out to get him since day one. For the most part, Gillis has led a charmed life in this town. He inherited a skilled team entering their prime and kept them together for under market rates. He has been openly and properly lauded for that – even though it essentially amounts to taking previous GM Dave Nonis’ car for a drive on cheap gas.

But other than that, most of his initiatives have failed. His trading record is best described as hit and miss. His drafting resume, to put it completely mildly and favourably, is still open for assessment. His forays into the free agent market have been failures with some rare exceptions (Dan Hamhuis and Jason Garrison).
So it is completely understandable that Gillis is now feeling the heat, from both within the organization and outside it. In the end, his team’s success, no matter how much of it accrues directly to him, has won him the opportunity to make things right.
As such, there has been talk from Gillis of another organizational “reset”, essentially an open plea for another five year mandate. But is that really necessary in this market? It shouldn’t require so much contemplation and hand wringing as to where to move the franchise next.

Well said, Joe.

It's supposed to be entertainment, people! Enjoy the ride!

These same people probably get upset by plot twists in stories too.
