Excellent trade for Vancouver, exactly what I was hoping for (an offensive C rather than a defensive type). Can't complain about the price either, given what Roy can bring to this team. Connauton wasn't tracking well and the 2nd is acceptable to give up, esp. if we can resign him in the summer. I'm the furthest thing from a Gillis fanboy - IMO his trading has been mediocre at best - but I'll give the man credit for this pickup. It may not pan out - no trade is a guarantee - but a) it is exactly what this team needs right now b) he's young enough to retain for the future, and c) you really can't argue about the price.
