Gillis gets a lot of praise by Vancouver homers, but the deal to get Ballard was a terrible move. Ballard is no more than a 5th or 6th dman, & he traded Grabner & a top pick to get Ballard. If he didn't have Ballard they could have kept Ehrhoff. I wish just once, Gillis would admit he made an error in judgement but his ego is so ****in' huge, I think his head would explode if he did admit that he's made some bad moves since arriving. I'd be surprised if he signed with the Islanders. There are some better teams to choose from.
Canuck Nation is an embarrassment to "true" hockey fans.
