When GM Mike Gillis was hired not more than two months ago, I felt a sigh of relif. Not a lot of Canuck fans have filled the bandwagon here on the left coast, however, Gillis promised "bold" moves and yesterday he delivered a "bold" move.
WOW a GM in Vancouver sticking to his guns. For several years here we constantly heard "we were close"; "we almost had him" or "the market is too expensive". Yesterday, Gillis proved that he wanted Mats Sundin and he wasn't going to let anyone else get the upper hand on him.
Its time to move on, don't wait for Sundin to make his decision. You made your best offer and I highly respect you for doing so, but it is now time to move on.
Bring in Demitra.
