Video: Canucks fans chant “Fire Gillis” as team is eliminated

UPDATE: Mission accomplished.

It was a forgettable season in Vancouver this year. As the Canucks’ playoff hopes were officially ended against the Ducks, the Vancouver faithful wanted GM Mike Gillis to know how upset they were.

So, with about three minutes to go, they started chanting “Fire Gillis.”

The announcers picked up on it as well, so that made it worse for Gillis. Everyone has bad days at work, but it is safe to say Mike Gillis had as bad of a day as anyone.
