And you came to this conclusion after a playoff exit in which the Canucks were the highest scoring team in the playoffs and the best at even strength as well? Interesting analysis to say the least. Especially when you consider how well the top 6 did against a big, physical Kings defense yet struggled against a pillow soft Chicago blueline - the least physical blueline in these playoffs by a country mile.

The Canucks couldn't kill penalties or hide their useless 'tough' players against the Hawks and that was their downfall. The fact Gillis is removing the weak penalty killers and defensemen that couldn't get the job done is a huge improvement.

I still think it's hilarous that you're criticizing Gillis for bringing in personnel that make the team bigger and harder to play against. It's like a nervous tick that you can't seem to shake.
