So I guess it's safe to say that whatever Gillis was trying to accomplish last week didn't work! :lol:

True dat.

IIRC he has several years left on his contract. Maybe he got tired of the lack of autonomy and decided to throw down the gauntlet. If it worked out, great, if not, oh well I'll take those remaining pay checks thank you very much.

It seems that way.

Four more years left on his contract unless the Leaves pick him up? :mex:

Was Aquilinis' early firing of Gillis a message to teams who are thinking of being in the market for a new GM?
