I have no love for the Canucks, but the Canucks under AV and Gillis are light years ahead of the KLowe lead Oil in every respect.
I think Gillis is extremely Lowe-like, and does deserve to be fired. Most of the moves he's made are poor, and will only look worse with the passage of time. Hopefully Vancouver doesn't realize it and retains him long term so he can ruin the franchise just like Lowe ruined the Oilers.

So no, I don't think it's ridiculous at all. But agree that it's pathetic that the Edmonton media never called for Lowe, MacT, Tambo, Renney, etc. to be fired when clearly they needed to be. Unfortunately all of Edmonton media are terrified that they'll be banned from the dressing room by the Oilers if they start calling for everyone to get fired. They'll keep silent, then dogpile on a guy once he actually does get fired saying what a great move it was.
