Update: Players' media availability will be at 11:00 AM PST today. You can see that live here.

******************

Mike Gillis will be answering tough questions at 12:00 PST on Thursday. There's already speculation about Alain Vigneault's job being in jeopardy because he will not be at the presser. But he was not at the year-end press conference last year either. Expect nothing big revealed Thursday except something about "the process" and "looking inwardly" etc etc.

Here is what Mike Gillis said about Alain Vigneault (and himself) a year ago:

Yea, can't use that "winningest coach in Canucks history" excuse this time, Mike. Well, actually, yes you can. You are the boss.

Here is what he said about the early exit at the expense of the LA Kings last year:

Other quotes:

"I think we need to get younger, I think we need to get bigger and stronger."

Huh...well we kind of did that. Or not.

Check out Canucks Hockey Blog for more quotes from that last presser. I always loved the Cody Hodgson comment.
