They're all Gary's draft picks, we're just borrowing them..

Keep in mind that if MG was a good GM he would have insured that we finished in the top ten for drafting in order to have earned that pick out right for himself. By allowing the team to play so well in the regular season he screwed this franchise and had no choice but to trade a young future number one goalie in order to get a draft pick the NJD earned with their poor play. If he had made the team tank he would not only have secured a top ten draft pick but he could have kept CS and moved Luongo. Or kept both because that was working well, or trade CS somewhere else for a different unearned top ten pick. Just keep it all in perspective and it will make sense.

Don’t forget that MG’s signings of BC born UFAs don’t count (Hamhuis, Garrison, Santorelli), not to mention waiver wire pick-ups (Stanton, Weise) and undrafted UFAs (Tanev, Lack, Archibald) don’t count either.

We need to stop feeding the troll... it know its tempting, but RD hasn't had a meaningful post in a LONG time. Resist the urge, and it might just go back under the bridge.

I see the Gillis Fellacio crew didn't take to kindly to my posting of how you can always find good prospects with 4th round draft picks. Go Utica! Go Pahlsson! Go Schneider!


It is truly interesting how THE 2 - 4th round picks parlayed 2 very good prospects. Totally fuckin amazing

Add to that that a re-signing of a player who was here before him also doesn't count.

When you add it all up, MG has done sweet bugger all. Which is the point, right RD!

Well actually they are probably BB players or maybe Pat Quinn, he was here for a long time and I think you can get 6 degrees of separation there somewhere.

Hahah...

RD is pretty damn good at what he does. A hockey board is pretty boring without the trolls. One inflammatory RD post spawns a whole host of others while intelligent posts probably only spawn half as many.

Good work RD!!

Wow RD, if those are your favourite top five MG trades I would hate to have you as a GM. Most people would not put those in MG's top five. Just wow that you think that way, so unlike you really.

Yeah but that's just it, I don't think he is trolling. He just seems to have lost it.

2011 affected us all in different ways...some retired from the board, some just faded away into nothing, some got depressed, some got angry :D , some got creative while others just lost all hockey perspective.

This goes beyond trolling, it is just kinda sad. BD use to have relevant hockey posts that were well thought out and argued. I don't think he is even capable of that anymore. For whatever reason the poster formally known as RoyalDude has become impotent :eh:

Yeah, a real GM would of got Horvat+ (a NHL player or prospect) for Schneids. A real GM would of moved Lou long before a goaltending controversy came about. A real GM would of never made a goalie the captain of the team. What do u expect from the player agent? :lol:

Speaking of Horvat, he's playing on the first line for the 1st pre-tourney game against Finland with Connor McDavid and the two combined for a beauty: http://www.tsn.ca/videohub/?collection=72&show=263900

That's the whole genius of the thing. You don't know if he's serious or not so as a serious poster, you, 95% of the time, give him the benefit of the doubt.

Haven't you noticed the pattern? Nucks are playing well? RD disappears.

Nucks go on a mini losing streak, RD appears with his inflammatory anti-Gillis comments which are GUARAN-DAMN-TEED to provoke the unwashed masses and god help you if you try to engage him with half decent, semi-intelligent logical replies.

And the fact that his trolling is somewhat intelligent and not "the Canucks are teh suck" make it all that more devious.

Trolling 401.
