Firing av to save his own job for one 

Sundin?

1) 3rd in points for the Canucks in the post-season

2) 

 

 

Gillis had his chance in any event.  He blew it.  You can't go home again......

I don’t think we should be making light of a futile team .... that is ahead of us in the standings 

I would typically agree. But it is the Oilers. And &^@# them:canucks:

 

Edit: I know the point you’re making and usually I’d agree with you. Pull the twig out of your own eye before condemning the person with a stick in theirs.  But it’s the Oilers. And 4 first overall picks in 6 years and how many other top ten picks. It’s ridiculous. Hate that franchise

Why bother let’s lose another 4 then win out 

 

they now need to win 3 out of every 4 to make it 

The Canucks could still win the Stanley Cup.

I mean wouldn’t you at least try Pearson and Toffoli on the same line ? You know that 70’s line, won a cup , ring a bell ?

Missed the playoffs only twice in about 30 years as GM.  No Cups though (five Stanley Cup Finals appearances).  There might be one or two other examples but it's pretty rare.  A number of GM's don't even get to hire & fire more than one head coach.

yes, but some franchises are stable and others are not.

Tom Rowe fired Gallant and replaced him with Tom Rowe, who was subsequently demoted  from GM and Coach to 'speciall advisor'

Paul Fenton never got to hire or fire a coach

Ok

I'm still on break

 

Or broken

 

I hold onto the hope that the Canucks can match the AVs intensity, speed and desire.

 

Drop it like it's hot

Yeah the Panthers are pretty much a gong show.

Minny and Nashville both getting the wins tonight just made the race that much tighter.

 

The Wild will leap frog us after their win and we’ll be clinging for dear life to the second wild card spot.

wonder how cooke will be received. he was loved for his grit, energy, and passion as a canuck, but everyone turned on him after. 

 

 

Cooke certainly wasn't a clean player, but he had his moments like those above that were clutch moments. If people can forgive Kesler for a night, surely they can do so for Cooke as well.

If you're critical of something and it doesn't change, you have the ability to decide whether to hang in or not.  But complaining isn't going to change things so it's wasted energy.  Especially if it's ongoing...futile.

 

The team's play is in the eye of the beholder.  Some see them not giving enough effort...I see that they're tentative and cautious.  They want it that bad.  So it's how we interpret it.

 

It's not all garbage and misery either.  That's the point.  Life is what we make it and if we wallow in misery is it better than being optimistic and hopeful?  Anyhow, enough out of me.   I know how I'm going to ride this season out...LET'S GO CANUCKS.

 

 

 

 

Contrary to popular belief, positive posts on CDC regarding the team changes nothing as well. So it's just as much a waste of energy. 

 

Of course the teams play is in the eye of the beholder. So why cant someone post something negative about it without some high horse riding cdc member getting on their case about negativity? 

 

I dont see many people going around telling others they're being too positive. Why is this a one way street? 

 

It's not okay for me to post negatively about the teams performance, but it's okay for someone to post negatively about my posts?

 

Doesn't seem right.

I don’t think a Kesler/Cooke comparison is fair.

 

Kesler was a pest 

 

Cooke almost ended careers

Sundin?

giving up Grabner?

marco sturm?

giving up Willie Mitchell?

 

Yeah he was awesome 

 

of all the weird things Gillis did in Vancouver those are what bug you most?

How about naming Luongo Captain or that horrible contract?

But Sundin, Grabner and Sturm? 

Even Willie, man I loved Willie Mitchell, I was at the game when he got hurt, but he was in danger of becoming Brandon Sutter, he missed 25 games his first year in LA and the whole season 2 years later.

Like I said I liked Willie, but kudos to Gillis for not getting all sentimental and overpaying a guy who might have been a boat anchor. Gillis signed enough bad contracts, but not as many as Jim. Willie just was not one of them.

And good for Willie for making it back into the league, the odds were against him.

Wasn't a Canuck when he went thru that phase.   I prefer to remember the Cookie that was a Canuck (especially since he to my knowledge never injured a Canuck player seriously in his post-Canuck career).
