Why the hate for these guys when they left the Canucks in such great shape?
This isn't a thread about Nonis or Burke but they hardly kept the team in 'great shape'. Nonis I think was the better GM of the two, even then his reluctance to go and get more scoring or do something for the heavily injured defense in 2008 was what brought on his demise in Vancouver. Nonis filled the bottom 6 with more or less NHL journeymen or middle-aged AHL players, but he did leave us some very good pieces that Gillis has re-signed for cheap. Burke was a nightmare though...
