Updated: The History Of Mike Gillis' Tenure With The Canucks

Bruce Bennett

When the team struggles mightily and fails to go deep into the playoffs, one of the easiest people to blame is the General Manager of the team. As always, hindsight is 20/20. So lets take an in-depth look at what Mike Gillis has done during his tenure as GM here. You gotta love his additions of Higgins and Lapierre for the 2011 playoff run. He is good at keeping core players here at a reasonable price but many argue that he hands out too many no-trade clauses and handcuffs himself in times like these. How is his drafting record? It's all here. Discuss!

Right about now, I have to give massive props to the HFBoards because I copy/pasted the hell out of a super post done by 19nazzy there. He made my job 100% easier and he kicks ass. I had to update his list though, and hopefully it's accurate. Let me know in the comments section if I missed anything.

In chronological order - ish....

Mike Gillis was hired as the Vancouver Canucks' General Manager on April 23, 2008.
