This is debatable.
I've now joined the Dude. Gillis sux.
I think Gillis will try to get some depth players to fill in the holes, but I don't think he has the money to get a big name player though. If he can find a couple cheap players like how he found Rome, he'll have done a good job.

If Schroeder is 3C, the Canucks are creame puff soft.
Yeah, I agree. Richardson probably has some more upside than Lapierre as he was a scorer in juniors, but he is smaller and probably not as gritty. With LapDawg, what u see is what u get and we know what he brings to the table: good energy player, works hard most nights, hits and ups his game in the playoffs. We know his negatives: has a bit of rep, not gifted offensively, and his game suffers if played too much. I actually don't mind all that, but I do wish he was a bit better defensively and on faceoffs. Say what u want about LapDawg, but I personally would of kept him cuz he has an edge to his game and he's a SoB to play against. I thought this team needs to get bigger and tougher to play against. He fits the bottom 6 forward positions beautifully. We were looking for a good 4th line centre for such a long time, finally found one and we let him go (a great 4th liner who can play on the 3rd line for extended periods as well).
