Not to mention our 1st and 2nd round opponents next year will be the same teams that beat us 8-1 in the last two years.
Gillis said he planned on "resetting" the roster. Last time that happened big changes were made by UFA signings, trades and offer sheets.
Going with Verviticus' roster is a sure way to get fired in a year if the Canucks don't make a very long run. The most realistic scenario is 3 big changes, two likely being a goalie trade and a coaching change.
Not sure I understand your second paragraph.
I agree the two big moves are coach and goalie trade.
Not sure he goalie trade augments the roster by doing anything but downgrading the goalie position.
Resetting the roster to me, is giving those young players decent opportunity at the NHL level.
I doubt very much we see anything bigger than that. And no i don't think Gillis will get fired if we don't go on a long run.
This team is in transition. Expecting a long run is setting yourself up for disappointment.
