Best move the franchise has made in years, to be honest.

After Tyler Seguin was drafted he should have been fired...let's be frank here....he basically gambled away the future of the team.

Id like to know his replacement? Nonis? Caryle must be sweating. New GM and the previous GM's coach dont go well.

I didn't think the new owners would have the balls to do this so fast. Great news for the Leafs.

Rotton timing regardless of if it is good or bad. There better be a good reason...if it is Luongo that is a BAD reason.

We're going to see some talent and toughness flowing into our system soon so let's not forget who got us them.

This timing is just so, so odd.

Why must we always be such a circus?

If they replace him with Nonis ... Nonis = worst GM in Canucks history

Probably a good thing because let's be honest he wasn't the right GM for us. But it's horrible timing and if the only reason we fired him was to trade for Luongo then it was a crap decision.

What makes this move bad is that right now, JFJ is THE BEST option available as a replacement GM, unless they're going off-the-board...

Horrible timing. Is it the right move? I dont know yet, Ill reserve judgement til I see who they bring in and what they do. If we go back to the old way, terrible move. If we bring in Lu and sell the farm, even worse.
I have a feeling we are about to stare down 40 more years for a couple playoff games.

Looks like all the "tankers" had it right after all.

Don't worry.

I won't pat myself on the back just yet.

Yeah I have no clue who we could get really. I guess we could get Sutter.

After the team imploded last year, why give him free agency and the draft? Unless it's just so you could have him for the CBA discussions.

Perennial basement dwellers under his tenure. One would say that he inherited a pretty aweful roster, but no other person would've made a worse job out of it.

Regular disappointments and even our prospects pool was just ranked 19th in spite of those disappointing finishes.

My only concern is the clock gets reset for the new GM.

I am irate at MLSE!!!!!!!!!!! How do they fire a guy who helped craft this new CBA!!!!!!!!

I bet that they were negotiating his contract extension and Burke wanted 5 years and MLSE would only give him 2 or 3 years... Then it got ugly and they decided to axe him...

So Fing stupid!!!! We are going to regret this move for decades....

Not even close. Nonis brought in Edler, Schneider, Mitchell, Luongo, and Burrows, and all it cost for the lot was a Bertuzzi, Auld, Allen, a couple draft picks, and money. He was overly patient/hesitant to make big moves at times that could jeopardize the future to win in the present, but at times that is a good thing.

I would have supported this if it was at the end of this coming season with no noticeable improvement.

At this moment, no.
