I'd agree. Honestly, he hasn't made a mistake thus far, which is beyond encouraging as far as I'm concerned. And the way he deals with players using his agent experience is absolutely brilliant.

Even though I'm a virile man, I want to have Mike Gillis's baby.

Sundin, SOB (my second favorite Nuck behind Hansen), Johnson (who's been awesome in his role and honestly we've been missing a pure shut-down center since Chubarov. Kesler is more of a two way top six player at this point) Hordichuk, Davison and restructuring the front office.

Is there legitimately anyone at this point who would rather have Nonis? I personally hated Dave Nonis and his reign here and don't get the minority on these boards that dig him.

Table looks fantastic. I've been wanting one of these for every GM for years.

Gillis has done an amazing job, easily matches Nonis' entire tenure here in just six months. Closest thing to a mistake is having to pay for the Pettinger contract for Tampa, but you know who brought in the useless slug.

I view his biggest mistake as protecting Brown and waiving Wellwood (twice), he was just very lucky not to get burned on that.

I think not firing Delorme was/is his biggest mistake. But then again, it is tough to really know what is going on behind closed doors. Given Delorme's history with the Canucks organization, it may not have been easy to just fire him.

Yep, for sure. But I guess that just gets filed under "gotta be lucky to be good."

Judging by our last draft, is Delmore really a problem? I know it's too early to judge but I doubt any Canucks fans were disatisfied with the last draft (I personally am excited about Suave and Hodgson)

Maybe it was the direction of the franchise or the guy in charge who was ****ing up and Delmore is just a scapegoat?

Don't let one average draft fool you into forgetting about the crap that have been Delorme's tenure.

Sopel (already mentioned), Jaffray (Canucks), and Weaver (Blues).

Shannon (Ottawa), Fitzgerald (Canucks), Schultz (Minnesota), and Green (Anaheim) are all on their teams AHL affiliate with Shannon seeing some NHL action this year.

The rest have either retired or are playing in Europe/Russia.

A few little nit-picks (otherwise, this is an outstanding thread. 19nazzy, a tip of the hat to you, sir):

Dan Gendur was signed to a three-year entry level contract, not a one year deal.
It would be nice to cite which areas Dean and Marois scouted in the section about their dismissal. I looked it up in the link to the thread and it's Saskatchewan for Dean and Quebec for Marois, if you wanted to add it.



I do have to laugh that Smyl was shuffled around twice in a three month span, and that they're both "promotions".

And let's not forget Cody Hodgson.

I wouldn't be suprised if Dave Nonis would have selected Kyle Beach instead of Cody Hodgson.

It's also worth noting, though I never saw it officially announced anywhere, that Darryl Young has been added to the scouting staff on Canucks.com since Gillis was hired. A quick search turns up that he's scouted the QMJHL in the past, so I'm assuming he's doing the same now.

Nonis would have picked Hodgson.

Bourdon was the "safer" pick at that point in the draft. Same as Hodgson.

Kopitar, like Beach, was seen as the riskier option.

We just got lucky that the safe pick turned out to be tons better this time around.

He'd have gone with Beach...home town boy, probably a Delorme pick.

Kopitar and Beach should never be compared...one has talent and the other, like I predicted, will be the next Shawn Antoski.

Luc Bourdon wasn't a safe pick at all. Marc Staal would have been a safe pick. Luc Bourdon was a project, home run type pick. He had the tools but it was a question as to whether he put it all together.

A lot like Dion Phaneuf in that regard. But if Phaneuf or Bourdon didn't reach their potential, they still would have been solid top-four defenders. In that way Bourdon was a safe pick.

I don't know if I'd agree with that. Phaneuf was seen as a safe pick because he was a physical defensive defenseman with questionable offensive upside who happened to break out offensively after being drafted (much like Marc Staal, actually). Bourdon wasn't really a safe pick because the biggest question about his play going into the draft was about his ability to play defense.
