I saw speculation that Mike Gillis’s job “could” be in trouble if the Canucks don’t make the playoffs.
I can only write about my experiences and after talking to Francesco Aquilini on this trip, I left with the feeling that is not the case.
He is as upbeat as he’s ever been, and is onside the line of thinking that what we’ve seen lately is not a true representation of where the Canucks are really at.
Gillis, for his part, remains very confident in his group.
“We’ll be all right,” he vowed.
I’m not saying he’s not planning a move or two. He is.
But it’s not going to be much more and he’s not reacting to anything we’ve seen in the past six weeks.
“Trading your core is how you end up at the bottom of the league.”
