Its like he doesn't exist. Take this summer for example, his most pressing need is getting some offense, does he do anything? Nope. The cap went up so cap space isn't the issue. If he doesn't like whose available in the UFA market the least he could is get some average players like Jeff O'Neil who he could sign to a one year deal.

That's a bold claim, he still has a lot to prove. Salo isn't anything special, if Anson Carter was a good move, then letting him walk wasn't. Pyatt is filler, Jeff Cowen needs to train hard in the off season so that he can one day develop into filler. If signing Willie Mitchell is considered a big move, it only emphasizes my point that Nonis is lifeless.
Both the management and style of play for the Canucks are timidly conservative and boring.

Yes he signed Marc Chouinard to a bad contract, and had a bad 2006 trade deadline, so whatever it happens.
