I don't know that Gillis could have done a much better job in terms of not only Cap Space available, but also holding on to QUALITY assets (IE: Hodgson, Schroeder, Schneider, Tanev, etc). He gave up a free agent signing that was never going to be a regular on the Canucks and a free agent dman who MAY one day play in the NHL but had already been passed on the depth chart by Tanev and Sweatt, plus a couple of 3rd round picks which usually amounts to about a 10% chance of finding a player who makes the NHL.

I have faith that Gillis is very quickly turning us into an organization that is going to contend for many many years in a row.
