LOFL that was too funny on too many levels!

I'll let you in on a little secret Aaron: I kinda like certain you-know-wots!

OK.... so when contemplating the marvellous endeavours of people like, well, I don't know, Mike Milbury, Doug McLean, Garth Snow, Lou Lamoriello, John Ferguson Jr, Kevin Lowe, Jay Feaster, the Sutters, Dean Lombardi, Craig Button, Glen Sather... just off the top of my head... you come to the indisputable conclusion that Mike Gillis really cuts the cake?

I'd love to see how you came to that conclusion. :drink:

RD has been on this bandwagon for years - he makes a statement about somebody, then as soon as that guy starts performing he backs right off. Did it with Schroeder just this year in fact, and now he's Schroeder's biggest fan. I think somebody forgets to take their bipolar meds some days.

Gillis is doing a fine job - yes he's got some improvements to make this season both on D (another RH needed) and either in the top 6 or top 9. There's a few guys I would like to see brought in, like Doc I think that Florida is where Lu is going and it will be relatively soon. If that's the case I'd love to see Weiss back (even though he's been awful this year and is a UFA so his value is down) along with a prospect, pick and a salary dump that can be bought out this off-season. My guess is Gillis has to add to Lu to get that done, maybe with a Raymond or even a Schroeder because he's cheap, but it would strengthen the team quite a bit.

My best guess?

When did you get the impression that I was going to change my opinions regarding Mike Gillis? Are all of you really that much in love with the guy? If so, I will try to contain my Gillis slags to a low roar as to not to upset the apple cart around here.


Oh I wasn't referring to changing your opinions about Mike Gillis, I was more referring to you changing your opinions about this message board - I kinda thought you were going to pretend that the board and other posters deserve better than the same old tired Chef Boi RD (ie. microwaved dogs breakfast.. to put it kindly) routine.

You wanna know what I think about losing Volpatti on waivers?

If I really stretch and try to be charitable to the Canucks brass, I think that maybe they decided they have no real use for the guy and cut him loose so he could attempt to earn another NHL contract somewhere else. Slightly less charitable, I think they didn't realize they were going to have Kesler out of the lineup until they'd already waived Volpatti, and simply mismanaged that situation. At worst they waived this player just to get him off the roster and lost him for nothing (which would be uncharacteristic given how long they've hung onto worse players than Volpatti in the past).

That being said, my opinion of Volpatti is that I'd rather see him in a fight that Dale Weise, but if I was putting together a line that I wanted to either score a goal or not give one up, I'd take Weise ten times out of ten over Aaron, hell I'd probably take Andrew Ebbett eight times out of ten for that matter. So yeah I'm not losing any sleep over this, there are five or six other guys the Canucks could use as much or more who've hit waivers so far this year so that's what, one a week for the season so far?

Salo > Garrison

Samuelsson > Booth

Hodgson > or = Kassian

Grabner > Ballard

Salo + Erhoff lower cap hit than --> Ballard + Garrison

Luongo Contract

Starting to come around to RD's POV?

Salo + Erhoff lower cap hit than --> Ballard + Garrison - there is already whining galore over the Luongo contract

Luongo Contract - arguably, its not his contract that holding up a trade...

Starting to come around to RD's POV?


Never!!


However...if the Canucks near future includes a backslide into mediocrity I reserve the right to turn on Gillis like hungry jackal...
