Yes, because their recent track record with their teams counts for nothing in analysis. You know, one who won back to back presidents trophies while the other has yet to make the playoffs.
Gillis job wouldn't be on the line in letting Lu sit on the bench for a bit because the Canucks would still be a winning, top level team. Toronto, if there goal tending falters, which if it stays in the same condition, IMO, it will. You are relying on two young, relatively unproven goalies to carry the load. Even teams with elite talent out front struggle with below average goaltending (i.e. Chicago).
If Burke, again, finishes in the lottery or is not at the very least getting close to a playoff spot this year I think his job could be on the line.
