Where do the Vancouver Canucks Go From Here?

By Ryan Kiray (@RyanK_THG) The Canucks’ firing of Mike Gillis on Tuesday was not entirely unpredictable. Slightly more perplexing is the notion that the Canucks somehow did what they did because of backlash from their fans; Gillis was certainly not the league’s most incompetent front office czar, but his termination was less about fan relations than the fact that Gillis lost...
