I miss the good old days when I would get excited for these because I thought he had news.

Hmmm... we're still waiting for AV to do that end of year presser. Has he not been able to work it into his busy schedule yet?

I doubt he says much about AV's contract status. I am interesting to hear what he'll say about this Booth issue. They'll probably lob the Adam Hadwin sponsorship softball at him (which I think is great the Canucks are doing). Burrows, Hansen and the WHC will probably be touched upon. They'll probably touch on the style of play that the final 4 are playing as Gillis has stated he doesn't like it.

Asking about Luongo/Schneider will be pointless, he won't give anything away there.

Sure glad they're wasting 10 minutes of Gillis' time discussing the David Booth hunting non-issue issue.

The media in this town continues to disappoint.

To me it doesn't sound as much of a slam dunk that AV will be back. Just me speculating, but Gillis' tone doesn't seem as optomistic as it was previously.

Don't see eye to eye on the direction of this team perhaps?

What did he say about that?

Want to ask somebody to kindly give a recap of this when he's done, please. Thanks!

He was asked if moving Luongo is a foregone conclusion (paraphrase)...

He started talking about it (talked to Luongo today....really likes him as a person) and then told BMac he couldn't answer the question.

is he trading Luongo or breaking up with him?

I don't think they've ever seen eye to eye on how the direction of the team. Which isn't neccessarely a bad thing. It's good to have differing opinions. The key is making sure that AV is willing to use the players Gillis brings in.

Yeah, it seems as though they've had some talks and maybe things have changed somewhere along the way. He seemed very non-committal and unsure compared to earlier interviews where he seemed very adamant that AV was his guy.

Which he has been guilty of not doing sometimes.

Typical circle talking by Gillis IMO. Not giving away anything.

In my opinion, I didn't think he sounded at all like 'typical Gillis' during the whole interview.

Hah sorry, I haven't been on much. I defer to your date of joke creation, and would like to point out that great minds think alike.

Leaning closer to keeping Luongo & getting rid of AV?

Sounds good to me.

Did Gillis mention how he plans to go after Garrison on July 1st when he's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.

Maybe you should swap out the Alec Baldwin avatar for a Jasaon Alexander one.
