Roll with what we have, hope some players bounce back under a new leader, and hopefully that's enough to get to the playoffs....where anything can happen.
Dropping cap and very little flexibility makes this the best case of direction IMO, if you don't like we know you like the Oilers, jump on that bandwagon for our re-tooling year.
I'm fine with retooling and a mini rebuild. I'm fine with a regressed standing if we have a clear direction that we are going in. But if our top 6 is going to remain relatively unchanged then I have a problem. If we are seeing the Sedins, Burrows, Kesler, Higgins, Booth and Hansen rotating as regulars in our top 6 then Gillis really does deserve to be fired. To me that doesn't suggest this is a retooling year, that suggests this will be a wasted year.
The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
