I don't know what was said, but if he initiated talks with other GM's like he initiates interviews/pressers and didn't just " listen " to what they have to say i'd have to imagine a move would have been made already lol.....

the media asks for media availability and he obliges to give an interview. Its not like they said "CANUCKS ANNOUNCEMENT AT 1PM" get a clue as to how the media industry works.

Funny you say that considering I finished BCITs broadcast communications program that is partnered up with the journalism program and most journalists said the opposite. The team & individuals have much more to do with availability to the media than what you suggest.

Perhaps you shouldn't speak out of your ass next time?

That's the POLITE word for what you are

NOTHING is known through reports, Gillis is trying to satisfy the demand for information, and in the process he does his best to pump his own teams tires. If you had one ounce of critical thinking skill you'd realize that Gillis is AT LEAST TRYING to drum up interest in his squad so he can get an offer soon, while trying to get the hounding Vancouver media off his back

What Gillis has done is great: he said NOTHING, but in saying nothing he has totally justified speculation, and any press is good press.

Of course a cynic would argue that teams will just wait for the Canucks to get desperate, but that's a risk other teams have to be willing to take as well. In creating this media speculation, Gillis has suggested that there is interest in his players, so if another team is interested, maybe they are less likely to take risks.

Gillis is doing the only thing he can do: hype up the interest in his own players in hopes that someone makes a good offer for either Schneider or Luongo, (EDIT:) and frankly I couldn't care less which leaves at this point, just so long as they get the hell out of here soon

I guess the POLITE words for you are "Elitist Jerk"

Thanks for confirming that for us

You guys are such clowns, its unbelievable

What do you expect Gillis to say? He cannot go into draft day and free agency appearing weak or like he NEEDS to make this or that move.

He needs to have as many windows of consideration open, and if he says one wrong thing, he could close one or a bunch of them

Gillis should stop doing pressers entirely and just work the phones and his staff.

Yes you are right but its so obvious Gillis is in a weak position lol

What if that "room" was actually a chat room, on Clowns Dot Com?
