I know I am not alone on this one. When are we going to not only say 'enough is enough' but act on these feelings. When is the media finally going to start the driving force?

I for one do not want this guy making hockey decisions in our city any longer. His prior positive contributions don't matter any longer. As far as im concerned, he has displayed complete incompetence in the handling of Luongo and the contract, and even larger incompetence exchanging our franchise goalie for a draft pick (no 9?!)

Most 16 year old kids could have made the assumption that Luongo's contract was immovable 6 months ago, what was he thinking??

Im cheering for the team and Tortorella, but please we need a new GM.

I'm going to share my opinion, because like all of you I too have one. I should rename the topic of the post, but that's hindsight.

If you find yourself planning a fan revolt... maybe you should take a little break from watching sports. Don't be that guy. :)

idiotic thread,
two things here,
Luongo isn't the only active player in the league with a long term contract, aka Kovalchuk, Hossa, Zetterberg.
Also Luongo's contract were signed prior to the NHL re-writing the rules of these longterm contracts. I don't really blame MG for not predicting that this rule would be in place 2-3 years prior to the new CBA.

It sucks for sure, and in the beginning we should've put Schneider in the trade bucket a while ago, but for all of this Luongo part I have no grudges.

What the hell did you want him to do? Pay $30M to say good bye to Lu. Easy when its not your money eh? How many trades did Lu turn down with his NTC????
I like the trade. We still have a good goalie and now have a blue chip centremen. Horvat would have been a top 5 pick in a year that wasn't so stacked. Carolina almost did pick him at 5.
When Lu signed the contract their was no issue in the CBA. MG and the Canucks got F'ed by Bettman.
Canuck fans are brutal. 2 years ago the fans wanted a 2nd round pick for Schneider. Gillis kept him, developed him, and got a top 10 pick in the best draft year in over a decade.
Get a life and go cheer for the Devils. There a reason this fanbase is considered one of the worst, way to show it.

Not to worry,I guarantee this organised revolt will lose all momentum and be diverted once and for all time when the Torts unleashes his inner ninja upon the hockey faithful in Vancouver and indeed,throughout the province of B.C..

I remember all the MG haters saying he didn't have the stones to make a bold move.

Now he makes a bold move and the MG haters are crying about it too.

I know right?

This summer would have been the awesomest if we'd just kept both goalies and focused our efforts on luring Marco Sturm back to solve our offensive issues....

To be fair to all haters,Gillis had no choice but make this move.
Bold? Not exactly. More like 'stones in vice' move.

Remember the paper bag parade in Edm to get MacT fired as coach? Now they welcome him back with open arms as gm, a job he's never had.

Hehe. Good times.

There should be more to revolting against Gillis than just the backstabbing of two goaltenders. How about his bad trades or non resigning of players? Or his condescending interviews on radios etc
