More likely scenario is the guys a prick nobody likes personally and it hinders his ability to trade and make personnel moves. He fucked over alot of gms as an agent i bet
Nailed it. A shameless self promoter, full of weird ideas, more ego, than a true rink rat. But yeah, a miserable pompous douche if you ever met him, and not liked in the fraternity.

Isnt Gillis so stinking rich from having a successful career that anything he does is purely out of interest? I doubt his U-I is running out soon or anything.

I feel a little bad for Gillis, he did give up an extremely lucrative agent practice to become a GM. He was probably earning millions a year, and I can't imagine how you'd build that back up - if you even could after being management.

LMAO, Ron Francis being named the GM of Seattle, :lol: this is devastating news for the HF and 1040 Gillis cult. Devastating! They were all pining for him to land the job. LOL. Melvin must be suicidal over this.
The world- Gillis failed at something

The dude- openly power strumming his 3 inch one string banjo
You-duls, you know who is not going to take this well outside of Blob, MS and his crew? Matt Sekeres.

If you are Gillis, You-dels, do you move on from the dream of working in the NHL again? It’s been 5 years long without NHL work now. Read the tea leaves, Mike. The reality must be setting in for ole Players Agent

Blob, your thoughts?
Why should I give a fuck? You are the guy who is obsessed with the man? The system couldn’t keep up with how many times you’ve mentioned his name which leads me to believe it’s somewhere between 5 K and 15 K. Little disturbing no? He hadn’t worked for the team in five + years yet you talk about him daily.

HF crashed, wonder where are all the minions will journey to, to get their hockey talk fix.

I am no cap expert but something in the water in Toronto is really messing with their brains. This deal does nothing for them, nothing except the space they gained by Sparks leaving. The same issue they had before on signing Marner is the same issue they have now.

Also as Topper said, what if they have an injury?

Dubas has got to the one of the dumbest GMs in the league and I cannot stop laughing at the writers for TSN and Sportsnet.

Well it's a desperation move, but it does help the Leaves deal with cap hell in certain ways.

See my post here:

viewtopic.php?p=349304#p349304

GMs (with the help of their cap experts) always have some sort of cap-consideration rationale.

Wow someone took a picture of RD at his desk on page 10 of that thread.

The big question: Does RD really own a white dress shirt?

Would post a link but using my phone and spelling is difficult enough, forget about linking to the pic.

Mick, any chance you can do that?
