Canucks In Listening Mode

from David Ebner of the Globe and Mail,

It approached high noon in Las Vegas on Wednesday, the thermometer soaring towards 40 C, and Mike Gillis still had a somewhat-tattered ace in his hand: Roberto Luongo.

“A lot of a different teams talk to us about a lot of different scenarios involving a lot of different people,” said Gillis, general manager and president of the Vancouver Canucks, on Wednesday morning in an interview with Team 1040, the club’s official radio broadcaster.

“We’re in a position where we can listen, and that’s what we’re doing.”

Gillis, in Las Vegas for the National Hockey League confab this week, heads to Pittsburgh for this weekend’s draft trying to beat down expectations of some sort of great blockbuster move for his ace. He suggested on Wednesday, as he has before in the past month, that the amount of trade action at the draft could be quiet rather than riotous – adding that his sense is that trades are more likely to unfold later in the summer, after the very thin free-agent rodeo.
