Yeah, I'm definitely going to follow but I'm not going to expect too much info from a guy as guarded as Gillis.

I expect some interesting insights and opinions, but I don't expect those to be about the canucks, other nhl teams or nhl players.

We'll ultimately see what happens I guess

I doubt it will be any inside info, but more about what his daily movements are, general thoughts on the sport.

Still interesting information, though obviously the more unguarded he is the more interesting it will be.

It'll be an assistant tweeting. Gillis was on team 1040 a month ago saying he wasn't huge on social media. I don't expect his tweets to be his own Laurence gillman maybe?

Or perhaps from the PR department?

It'll probably be about as interesting as Wally Buono's..."good week in practice, this is an important game for us, follow our players on twitter", repeated weekly.

What will he talk about? His favourite Amazing Race team? His Call of Duty clan? Cooking his way through Julia Child's cookbook?

If that's the case then he really isn't worth following.

I heard Gillis say during an interview earlier this year that he planned to join twitter. The interviewer asked if it was so that he could bypass the media 'filter', and MG implied that it was without saying as much. I don't know how it's going to be much different than the @VanCanucks feed, but w/e I'll be following.

That won't last long. There is a reason there are no other GM's on twitter. Kinda like how there are no other goalies as captains. He insists on doing things the hard way though. What's the over under on how long Gillis lasts on twitter, 1 month?

I'm sure we'll see Gillis calling out his players via twitter.
