Josh points out it finally happened Sunday as the Canucks traded away goalie Cory Schneider to the New Jersey Devils.In return they got to pick Bo Horvat, then with their second 1st round pick they chose Hunter Shinkaruk. A good day for Van City. Mike Gillis certainly isn’t making it easy to form an opinion on him.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Kevin “The Flying V’ Vanstone tells us the preamble to the 2013 NHL draft promised a day filled with bold moves and intrigue, and Mike Gillis wasted no time supplying the league with both by trading Cory Schneider to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for their 9th overall pick on Sunday.
