No, Gillis can't draft worth shit. Coming up to his 5th draft and the only one draft pick of his that has made the grade in that time, he trades away for a player playing in the minors. I don't think Gillis is a big believer of drafting and developing. He has traded more picks in his time as GM than any other GM in Canuck history.
I love it though, cause the pressure is really on Gillis now. We finally get to see what he is truly made of as a GM after hiding behind a team where it's core players were put in place by previous management, now that that core is getting stale or showing signs of it, we now get to see what Gillis is truly made of. Can't wait.
You do realize that it's R Delorme and the scouting staff that do 98 % of the leg work for the draft and they have the MOST say in who gets picked don't you ? Gillis is a figure head and little else. The scouting staff are the ones you should have an issue with.
Oh and BTW Dogsalmon the Canucks drafting is about average for the league over the past couple decades.....not bad, not good but your meltdown is a bit misguided.
