I'm not saying Gillis is bad because he's not a bad GM, but everything he has accomplished is due to pieces already in place, he just allowed AV to utilize those pieces better and had a bunch of cap room the year he took over to improve the depth from the Nonis days. The reason Nonis had a bad 07/08 was because we had no cap room and thus no depth. But his draft picks like Hansen, Raymond, Edler, Schneider have all been really solid and cheap players for Gillis to take advantage of in addition to all that cap space and a couple local guys wanting to play here.
