Very true. They will claim them for his predecessors while ignoring the glaring "Out of Playoffs" they sported while in Vancouver and their new team.

No GM is perfect, but most of what Gillis bashers attack him for are revisionist hindsight on moves perceived to be good at the time they were made. There are legit issues, but no one is perfect.
