    This is very consistent with the type of stuff Dean was saying about the guy in a personal conversation I had with him during the 2011 draft.

    Never heard that story before. What a jack-ass.

    Still think he was a decent GM for us. I blame the Aquilini's more for the goalie controversy than I did Gillis, but reading Duthie's account of his interaction with M.G. certainly makes me feel better about his firing.

    Thanks for posting that Nasti.

    1. Linden part 1 – thoughts on coaching

    Were the Sedins misused this year?

    “I think you have to use your people where they will best excel, and good coaches understand that. I haven’t talked to John about it. I think most people would say you put your best offensive players in the most offensive positions you can.”

    Was it a good idea to use the twins to block shots and kill penalties?

    “It’s one of those things where I probably felt personally it was a misuse of their abilities, but I’d have to dig deeper into it.”

    Good: “But you know they’ll do anything they’re asked to do.”

    “Exactly, but I have to get the information. I’m not sure if John feels that was a mistake or not, I mean if he feels strongly about it… (trails off).”

    I remember Gillis putting together a spreadsheet detailing the disparity of penalties and power plays during the Canucks series (don't know if it was 2011 or 2012). I realize every GM is gonna fight for his team but it came across as douchey. Plus he's a former agent, right? Like I need another reason to dislike him...

    I believe it was after the Canucks blew a 3-0 series lead to Chicago in 2011. It was his last minute desperation move to avoid one of the biggest chokes in history.

    BTW . . . my gut feeling tells me that the reworking of the Canucks image started last night after the Oilers game when, despite being manhandled by the Oilers, the Canucks all come back on the ice to congratulate Ryan Smyth on his last game. This has Linden's fingerprints all over it.

    Poignant.

    That behavior is incredibly vital for their culture inside that room.

    Default The Circus that is the Vancouver Canucks [GM Mike Gillis Fired]

    I believe the Flames did the same for Linden if I remember correctly so he probably had that in the back of his mind too.
