I really don't get the Delmore hate. I won't deny the Canucks drafting has been horribly inconsistent and I think we totally ****ed the up on Bourbon, White, and Ellington. However, the Canucks have drafted relatively well over the last couple of years in my opinion. I think we have one of the highest drafted players to make the NHL count in the league. Granted we've haven't nabbed a superstar and there's been some just colossial failures but overall we do turn out a lot of good players. I think a lot of our problems in the past have been with developing the players and incompetence within management which Gillis has addressed directly in his short time here. I really think we as fans don't have enough information on what Delmore does or his job performance to be as hardcore anti him as we are. Also in this hatred you all seem to assume that there's someone available to work for this team who would do a better job than Delmore. Quite frankly, I'm thrilled that Gillis has cleaned house as much as he has and I think he's done a stellar job so far. And I'm also thrilled with our most recent draft (Hodgson and Sauve are going to be excellent in the NHL and Rai has a chance in my opinion) and I'm willing to give it some time to see how Delmore works in the Gillis administration.
