Gillis to blame for Canucks fall from grace

From where I sit it looks like the rebuild is underway in Vancouver...


It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Canucks are making changes. The 2011 Cup final was their best chance. They've won 2 playoff games since then. What's been frustrating is hearing the amount of blame being put on the goalies. Both Schneider and Luongo have been shipped out and the team still hasn't addressed their real problem. A lack of goals. Eddie Lack gave up one goal against Phoenix and the Canucks still lost. They managed just 23 shots in the game, with 11 of those being in the 3rd. A pathetic 4 in the 2nd didn't help the cause. All the confidence is gone from a team who won the Presidents Trophy just 2 years ago. Also gone are the scoring threats. Cody Hodgson and Mason Raymond were both high speed, high potential players now making impacts in other cities. What should worry Canucks fans is the continued employment of Mike Gillis. The GM has managed to turn a Cup contender into a team likely to miss the playoff altogether in just a couple of seasons. I would be surprised if Gillis is still in charge after this season, he has certainly shown he's well past his level of incompetence.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
