My oh my how people have forgotten the days of Brad Isbister, Byron Ritchie, and some combination of Shannon/Jaffray/Pettinger/Beech. Days when the best player in the bottom 6 on some nights was Jeff Cowan. They were all wastes of space and no better than depth call ups the canucks are using now except they were regulars. I'd wager there really aren't many teams that can go 4 or 5 deep on callups.

And really at least Gordon has 50 games of NHL experience.
Exactly right, Gillis has added enough depth that when healthy we have a full lineup of NHL players. Gillis has added alot of depth with acquiring Higgins and Lappierre. The only forwards he has let go that went on to play okay somewhere else is Torres. While he has added numerous players. Hopefully Schoeder, Jensen and Kassian are playing well next year are low paying contracts.
