But how a GM treats his players goes a long way and if Gillis is hard as he looks attracting UFA's will be difficult. It looks like Gillis is kicking Raymond while he is down.
If the Canucks are hated by players how do they get top quality UFA's to sign there for under FMV?

The players may not be the most liked but there's no faults in the organization. Less cash in pocket but more than the money is made up in working conditions, private chefs who prepare healthy meals for players, anything you could ask for is attended to by the team and personal health issues are hugely important to the team. Just look at the way they dealt with Rypien (RIP) and the founding and support of MindCheck to help athletes with mental issues. The organization is far and away one of the classiest in the league.
