Canucks GM Mike Gillis and Assistant GM Laurence Gilman joined Pratt and Taylor in-studio Tuesday afternoon, discussing a variety of Canucks-related topics.
Among the on-ice topics Tuesday were the tight Western Conference standings, Roberto Luongo’s workload, the emergence of Ryan Kesler and Jeff Tambellini, and Cody Hodgson’ orbital bone injury.
Gillis also called out Don Taylor for Donny’s belief that Markus Naslund’s #19 should not have been retired Saturday by the Canucks. Gillis then hinted that the Canucks are considering honouring Pavel Bure in some way, although a jersey retirement likely will not take place. Ring of Honour, perhaps?
The interview ended with an overall look at the state of the NHL. Gilman, who formerly worked in Phoenix, commented on the Coyotes ongoing ownership situation, while both commented on the concussion epidemic in the league.
