There is something Boothian Biblical, genetic, birth defect about that statement that even I can quite grasp. But then the statement came from the jaw bone of an ass.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Gillis.Who is he?

he is a players agent...not a G.M...Gillis.


A post on the previous page speaks about the lack of goal production... sooo...here we are, facing the exact same shite. Me thinks that Dogsalmon summed Gillis up last year. I really don't beleive Gillis has the insight about the 'mechanics' of hockey as much as people tend to give him credit for.

But he is consistent. As an agent he over valued his players too!

Was there something on the radio today about a report that Gillis is not allowed to make deals today without Aquaman being involved or someone else?

Which Murphy shot down.

It is however not uncommon for ownership to be involved when star players are moved and we are run by committee.

Let Gillis do his job or fire him. Do not like owners messing with trades.

With Luongo gone to Florida, Gillis has cleared $2M in cap space. Now Daniel has been placed on LTIR. There is a lot of cap room now for Gillis to monkey around. He has some crazy wiggle room that he didn't a week ago. Let's see what he does with it.

He'd be stupid to piss around with draft picks for rental players at this point.

With Daniel going down and Luongo dealt, this team isn't making the playoffs. Overpaying for a rental would not get us into the dance, why bother? Let nature run its course, pick (another) top-10 prospect, and rebuild properly. This team is so far away from being in the same conversation as Chicago/Pittsburgh it's silly.

Luongo would not make a difference. The team just cannot score goals. Having Matthias can only improve the situation, not making it worse.

For him to be a buyer at this point would definitely be heading down the Calgary way.

LOL, I can't believe people are even discussing this.

Absolutely no way Gillis should be a buyer.

Either make a 'hockey deal' (like what I'm hoping they do with Kesler) to get younger, bigger, and faster,

OR, you become a seller (i.e. Hansen for a draft pick or a prospect, for example).

Add pieces for the NEXT core. This one is finished.

Agreed, but this might be a good time to unload some vets and load up some picks and prospects.
