As tough (boring) as it is to watch the Canucks right now I do think the doomsayers about the future of the franchise are way ahead of themselves. The Canucks have issues but they are not so drastic that it would take an overhaul to fix.

What they really need is a third line center, Kesler healthy and to resolve the neverending goalie situation. A puck moving right side D-man would be amazing, but really just someone a touch more reliable than Ballard would be OK. Gillis has time to figure things out to keep this team contending for a long time. This trading deadline/offseason will be the the biggest of his career. He has to fix his mistakes and the pro scouts need to get a whole lot better.

I don't know that I'd call myself an optimist as far as the Canucks go, but I don't want to watch Gillis run the team into the ground, so I'll try to have some faith.
