I figured missing the heritage classic had to be an omen. Now where to spend the money?

Spend? I'm pretty sure we are dishing more talent. Philli and Pitts have both put offers on Kesler and there's a handful of weaker offers for Edler allegedly.

How much does Gillis get paid?

Well, unless the Aquilinis want to start getting around town in an armoured car they better not change their habit of spending at our close to the cap, so even if we do dish Kesler or Edler (everyone that went to Sochi apparently) I am guessing they are looking at the market to add some talent.

BAck to Florida, he should be happy now.

……..He now joins Tim Thomas, the goaltender he faced in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final when they lost to the Boston Bruins

into another frying pan.

How the eff does Pittsburgh have the room to put an offer on Kesler?

… And got no one for him. A goalie with 1 win in 12 GP (sounds like they just needed a body), and someone to be named (which leads me to believe its some 5th round draft pick that'll never step foot in the NHL).

I really and truly can't believe that Mike Gillis still exists in the NHL. Its ludicrous that he has a job anywhere.

They dont really, unless they move someone. Luckily (for them) Kesler's cap hit isnt massive.

Oh wait,

Markstrom has spent the majority of the year with the Panthers AHL affiliate in San Antonio where he was recently named AHL goalie of the month

WOOHOO! What a deal. One of the best goalies in the league for someone who got an AHL goalie of the month award.

A must-have for any team that desperately needs goalscoring - a second-string minor-league goaltender. Canuck's problems solved in one fell swoop! Genius or what?

I can pinpoint the precise moment where I lost my faith in this Clown College of an organization.

It wasn't when they traded Schneider in lieu of Luongo…It was when I found out they traded Schneider in lieu of Luongo without talking to Luongo about it first.

I mean, my first impression - "Okay…wow…They're sticking with Luongo. He must be willing to let bygones be bygones now that we're talking about a new coach." But no. No…they never seemed to think it would important to discuss this new plan with the guy who had already mentally checked out.

And now, to trade him less than a year later? I mean…it's just beyond unbelievable how badly they've managed to screw things up.

I blame Bertuzzi.

what a shitshow gillis is.

at one point they had two of the best goalies in the league, now they have lack-up and a nobody.
the organization could have gotten so much more for the assests they had instead of what they ended up with, one good prospect and a few 3rd or 4th line plumbers.

not even worthy of a face palm.

i called this a few years ago saying their time was over and to be ready for years of misery. this team is done for a while.

Getting this cap spending room doesnt mean a thing if Gillis is our buyer.
I expect to see a pink slip come his way at the end of the season , or we will continue down the standing.

Gillis , the genius that he is , is probably talking with the Devils to see if he can re-aquire Schneider.
