Some Canuck fans have, most of the more logical ones who can see the forest for the trees so to speak can understand the dilemma. We aren't thrilled with how the situation was handled, but a good portion of us are overall happy with the end result. Gillis has been the best GM we have had here in years, he has really transformed the organization. He is also a young GM who will make mistakes, just as all GMs do (see the buy-outs). Where as we don't like how the situation was handled, most of the more logical fans can get over that and focus on the bigger picture.

On to Clifford: I'd like the guy in Vancouver, but I wouldn't offer Tanev for him. We need defensive depth, especially cheap guys who can step into key roles. Both Tanev and Corrado are those guys, we will need both if we hope to go far. Not to mention, I have no idea why LA would want a young #4/5 defenseman with upside.
