Mike Gillis’ Letter to Canuck Fans

Today, Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis wrote this letter to the team’s season ticket holders.

If you believe him, Canuck fans have absolutely nothing to worry about. In fact, everything’s great. Who needs the second round anyway?

What do you guys think?

Dear ________,

I am writing to you far earlier than any of us wanted or anticipated. Although we won the division for the fifth consecutive season, regular season success alone is not our ultimate goal.

It is my responsibility as the leader of this organization to work with my leadership team to evaluate all aspects of our hockey club and find ways to improve. You have been extremely supportive and your passion is what drives us every day to get better.

Everyone in our organization from our owners, management, coaches, players and staff expected more from this season – and we know you did as well. Losing in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs the past two years is unacceptable to each of us. This off-season will lead to difficult decisions including roster adjustments and changes in personnel. Though I believe the condensed schedule made adjustments challenging and does not necessarily reflect the full potential of our on-ice group, the fact remains that we’re going to have to reinvent ourselves and do things differently in order to be successful.

It is my intention to communicate with you as often as I can throughout the summer months. On behalf of our entire organization, I thank you for your continued loyalty and assure you we will work as hard as we can to make you proud and to ultimately win the Stanley Cup.


Michael D. Gillis
President and General Manager
Vancouver Canucks

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
