Hate this signing. The guy's biggest asset was his speed... and his knees are shot. Nice one, Gillis. Was Sturm a client of yours at one point? This has the same reek as Demitra.
F*ck me, I'm pissed. Gillis had better pull a couple rabbits out of a hat, because in case he hadn't noticed, the rest of the western conference is bulking up. Seems that since the finals, the book is out on the Canucks. Beat them up and they'll go away. Don't worry about the ensuing penalties in the regular season because who is Gillis going to replace Erhoff with? Besides, when the playoffs come around the refs will look the other way if the Canucks get hacked, whacked and brutalized. Wonder why the likes of Edmonton is signing the likes of Eager and Hordichuk? I liked his chirping already. Somebody should submarine him straight into the end-boards before he cheap-shots the Sedins or Kesler.
We better get used to seeing our guys hobbling to the dressing room after getting cheap-shotted while their teammates kill off a retaliatory penalty for uttering a profanity against the offender. I guess the Boston model is being emulated...
Gillis, what is your answer? We've yet to see it.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League.
