In the end, this is on Mike Gillis.

Forget, for a moment, all the white noise surrounding the ongoing soap opera that has been the goaltending saga that has lingered over the Vancouver Canucks like a bad stench.

Wade through all that stuff, and here is the bottom line.

When all is said and done, the return the Canucks GM received in trading away Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo is Shawn Matthias, Jacob Markstrom and a first-round pick that was used to select Bo Horvat.

Would you make that deal even up?

Didn’t think so.
