Helluva lot to prove, isn't it? Hardly a Burkey "hot mic" problem.

What if Jovo or Campbell told Lou to "hold tight, we'll get ya..."? Hardly tampering if the players are just tossing rumours around like the internet pundits.

I can see if it's someone in the organization doing that. Good luck proving it,though.

I agree it is hard to prove. But listen to the reports. They all say Luongo was told by someone in the Florida organization to be patient. I'm just saying if it is true he nixed a deal MG should act and make waves. Let the truth come out.

Regardless of a Lu trade or some other trade, Gillis needs to pick up some offence. Watching this team struggle to score 1 or 2 goals a game is painful.

He's got about 36 hours left, hopefully he brings in some reinforcements.

Yep. Or wait it out and suffer the consequences.

The Canucks need centre help. Halpern moved for nothing. Handzus moved for a 4th. Neither of those guys has much left in the tank, but for free or a 4th rounder, maybe it allows Lapierre to play 3rd line, open it up a bit, and solidifies the 4th at the same time. We know Burrows isn't a great centre.

I'm usually as patient as the next (reasonable) guy, but this is becoming too much.

Are you trying to have Buttman use a castrated Cox to Greek Nick?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

So the fiasco that was is finally over and it sure seems that Gillis is getting the NDP treatment across the board for his handling of the drama. From media Columnists to armchair pundits alike he's taking the blame for the conditions of the NHL CBA and aparamtly the state of global economics. Though thankfully around here its much more level headed.

Gillis seems to be taking it in the rear over the length of time it's taken to resolve things but really I don't see how he could have handled things differently.

Other than not offering the contract in the first place of course
And maybe firing AV in 2010 before he could start Schneider in game three when he was not the starter and the team was not losing due to goaltending.

(There is a reason that you always stick with your starter and it was luongo's net and team until that point. )

However the die was cast with the cap dodge and it seems it was only a matter if time before buttplug was going to screw over Vancouver and make an example of Gillis and by extension NYI and Tampa for their own cap evasions.

The timing of the CBA And the pressure created by the optics of having Schneider usurp luongo in LA combined to squeeze Gillis into a corner to make sure no other GM was going to ride to the rescue unless Gillis was. Willing to give the farm away.

So what's a poor Irishman to do?

I guess the moral of the story for GMs and owners alike is dont fuck with Gary

Royaldude,

You're the man and everything and as much as I rib you on here, you know there's much man love behind those ribs.

Having said that, I seriously hope you're not this negative in real life.......and that much of what you say on here is trolling for trolling sake.

I don't remember you being this negative on Canuckscentral, or even the rival.com days.

Even in the game day threads, the only time you ever post on there is when the Canucks lose, or are losing.

What gives?

I dunno......
