What do you want the guy to do?
The owner got Gillis to make the contract with Luongo despite Gillis advising him not to. To fire Gillis over that would be ridiculous.
Gillis also managed to get a pretty good deal for Lu if it wasn't someone from Florida telling him that they were going to get a deal done, which made Lu veto the deal to Toronto.
The only issue I have with Gillis is that he hasn't managed to get us a good replacement for Kesler but its not really his fault that his entire 2nd line has been injured for most of the season...yet we still might win our division.
