Gillis says Raymond NOT available + likes depth on D and toughness

As per Insider Trading tonight on TSN.

Dreger says he spoke to Gillis and Raymond is NOT available nor are they shopping him, and he is happy with the team's depth on defense as well as toughness, and may not do anything at the deadline.

and how many GMs actually come out and say what their plan really is?

how many times do we hear X player is not getting traded only to see him gone in a week, or a coach's job is safe only to see him pushed out of the building?

If you ask me, that comment is the kiss of death

To me they can add some toughness.....but they had no issue till SCF....and it didnt help that they were banged up......

thought they showed it in the Burins canucks game in Jan


Mg is probably content if he had to go to the playoffs with this team as is....

but I wouldnt predict which way he goes ...he could make a blockbuster trade, a major aquistion or just tweaking. He does usually keep his cards close to the vest. And his team is one of the top contenders, so I wouldnt rule out a move to make this team even better

Gillis is doing his job by not saying too much about his team.

Dreger is doing his job by reporting what he hears.

I don't think Gillis is shopping Raymond either, but I'll be surprised if Gillis doesn't make a move by the end of trade deadline (doubt they'll be big)

who knows

Did he say he 'liked' the depth on defense and toughness or that those were the areas the Canucks were looking to address as the deadline approached? Cause it seems a heck of a lot more likely he said 'Raymond is not available; would like to add some toughness and depth defense" then he's happy with those things.

As far as I'm concerned everyone calling for more "toughness" is basing that off one opponent, the Boston Bruins. You cant build your team just to match the style of one individual team. The Canucks Core have proved they are "tough enough" to beat teams like Chicago, Nashville, San Jose, Los Angeles in a playoff series over the past two seasons.

It just so happened they met up with the team who plays the most bruising style in the finals last year and had an already fairly battered lineup, which made it difficult to respond physically. Too bad that was unlucky, but hey they still went to Game 7... so they very well could have beat them if a few things went different early in the series, but they didn't.

I'm sick and tired of people thinking the Canucks will not be able to compete for the cup without more "toughness" because they just took the toughest team by a county mile to 7 games in the Final. And lets think about this for a second here, if they were "tough enough" to beat the Chicago's and San Jose's of this league. I see no reason why they wouldn't be able to potentially beat the Flyers, Rangers, Captitals, Penguins or yes even the Bruins.

One Player doesn't change your team dynamic, but we have a damn effective team dynamic already. Lets run with it again.
