And it's all over, now time to work on a trade for Luongo pending a new CBA.

Be funny if the Phoenix deal falls through, and they relocate to Quebec lol.

Predictable. He has said all along he wants to stay in Phoenix. Too bad as I would have loved him here but life goes on.

Speaking of Kane :D , I guess his failure to re-sign in Winnipeg may now cost him once the new CBA is in place.

I'm not terribly upset we didn't sign a 36 year old to a 4 year contract worth close to $5M per year.

We can always hope his loss will be our gain... More unrealistic dreams on my part I guess.

I'm not terribly upset either. I would have loved him on the team but I won't lose any sleep over it. I never believed he would leave Phoenix in the first place, I mean he has said all along he wanted to stay there.

On the surface it looks like we lost out on every major player this summer but when breaking it down I'm not too upset at any of it.

I thought offer was $6M? 5 would have been much more palatable in my mind. But either way, agreed, this isn't the greatest disappointment.

+1. And doubly so if the Canucks offered him 24M/4 years.

Oh well, @ least Gillis got Garrison I guess. Bit of an unknown and had 1 great year, hopefully he'll be a solid player for us for a few years.

I for one am quite satisfied with Gillis this offseason. Chasing Doan was exciting but like others have said I am not surprised we didn't land him. Personally I would rather have not signed him for the money that was being reported and what Phoenix ended up paying for him.

I like Doan but financially right now, and looking into the future it didn't make perfect sense for this team to sign him. Our prospect pool is slim and we have enough veterans IMO. By the time the NHl resumes all of our core players will have matured that much more.

I'll reserve my judgment re: Gillis post-Luongo.

Not thrilled that we lost out on Doan, but wasn't thrilled at the prospect of the offer either.

This one was beyond Gillis' control, IMO. I'm more pissed about Schultz. They totally blew that one.

How did they blow it? By that I mean was there something they should have done that they didn't do to obtain him?

That reflect my feelings as well. I was excited about the possibility of the Canucks adding Doan, but really wasn't sure about the offer and fit.

I don't understand how the Doan decision was beyond Gillis' control but Schultz's decision wasn't. With Doan, at least Gillis could adjust his offer to make it more attractive, and by virtue of offering 4 years and staying patient, Gillis made Vancouver a possible destination for Doan. With Schultz, there wasn't anything Gillis could do except make promises of playing time. It's hard to argue that Edmonton wasn't the best situation for Schultz if he wanted to make the NHL as soon as possible and be given prime offensive opportunities. What could Gillis have done to convince Schultz to sign here? The kid chose opportunity over being able to play in front of his parents.
