From my view it was a solid trade. High 1st round pick in a very deep draft for an unproven goaltender with less than 100 games in the NHL, and sub 30 starts in a season. Sure he has lots of potential, but potential doesn't always pan out.
The mistake Gillis seemed to make was in immediately wasting that pick on Bo Horvat when much better prospects seemed to be on the board, but then again I liked Nichushkin at 9th so what do I know.
I'm sticking to what I said weeks ago when Alaine Vigneault got the boot......Gillis is an arrogant "dick" that has no business meddling anymore with this Team. Anyone catch the morning news on Global when he "blamed" the fans of Vancouver??? What an ass...even Don Cherry concurs
First string goalie? Gillis is a complete fool and this trade just proves it. We go from having two of the top goalies in the league to having none in half a season. And what did we gain? Not a damn thing
