To be fair to GMMG, no one was really beating down Willie's door to sign him. He had just missed an entire playoff and it was unknown if he would ever recover from his concussion.

I think it's a fair point to critique the Canucks pro scouting though. Some of the additions they have made are baffling (Sturm, Barker, etc.) and others have simply fallen flat (Ballard, Booth, etc.).

I almost want the Canucks NOT to trade Luongo to FLA so that we don't get another FLA player back.
