There is no way in hell his plan from 3 years ago included pissing off his starting goalie, publicly demoting his starting goalie, and spending a year+ trying to trade his (ex)starting goalie, only to have the owner have to fly out to Florida to say "oops!".
Unless there is a follow-on sentence from Gillis, that statement is extremely misleading. To the extent that we haven't been shown the entire conversation yet, I'm willing to cut Gillis some slack. But if that really was the essence of his complete statement, he deserves to be mocked and ridiculed.
And fired, frankly, except at this point it looks more and more he's just a bag-man for an Aquilini-run team, so in that sense it's not really his fault, the way the Islanders aren't really Snow's fault.
