I don't think anyone here gets a hard-on from Gillis. I think that the majority of people share your opinion, he's done a decent job, but he's not the best GM we've ever had.Todd Bersnoozi wrote:*haha* Thanx bro. We definately think a little bit differently than most here. Oh well, different thoughts/ideas is what makes things interesting. I really don't know why MG gets such a hard-on here. Don't get me wrong, I think MG has done a decent job, but I don't think he's all that.RoyalDude wrote: Fantastic post Bersnoozi, I am printing it and framing it
Apart from trading for Luongo, Nonis did nothing. His success in the draft came the year he took over, so it's a safe bet he simply picked the same guys that Burke and Co. going to pick all along. After that he added old players at the end of their career and traded away 2nd round picks and plumbers in exchange for depth players that didn't add much.....if they even played at all.
So I think that Nonis was pretty useless outside of one trade. I think that Burke was pretty good but missed a couple of pieces. I think that Gillis has been pretty good but has missed a couple of things too. I do get the impression that Gillis is trying to add pieces that both Burke and Nonis would not have attempted to add.
You may get the impression that lots of people think Gillis is the best GM going, but really you are just reading too much into what RD insinuates. If you disagree with RD, then you automatically think the total opposite of him. I'm sure he's taken that post out of the frame and burnt it by now after you said that Gillis has done a decent job.
