Gillis ain't get anything remotely close to what his delusional plan thinks he is getting.
Uh he was 12th last year with 0.919, but 4th the year previous with .928 (his 2nd best ever).

But even if Gillis doesn't get what he wants, it's all good. We rock the Schneids/Lou tandem for the compressed season (lots of back to backs) and then try to deal him for value at the end of next year.

If there is still no takers we trade him to Florida for cheap, win for the Canucks and win for Luongo - a class act who has conducted himself with absolute professionalism.

Perfectly played by Gillis, and ultimately he will end up doing right by a long time Vancouver veteran. As it's been for the past 5 years, great time to be a Vancouver fan
