doctors misdiagnosed him!). I think the Canucks grew tired of him wanting a bigger role and his camp working behind the scenes to get him out of there--either to get that bigger role or because they were still pissed off about the misdiagnosis, or both. Some relationships don't work, and it's the fault of both sides. It seems we're trying to argue over to whom we should allocate more blame. Who cares?! Both sides need to move on.
What Gillis did with that statement was reprehensible. He essentially tried to tag Cody as a problem child three months after he dealt him in order to cover himself from the backlash he has and will continue to receive. It is a terrible move on his part.
