My hopes are that the new movies will cover the Thrawn trilogy but a Dark Times trilogy is also quite possible. They did say Star Wars VII, VIII, IX and a new movie every two or three years. So maybe independent stories that mesh together once in a while, like what they're doing with Marvel.
As for EU canon it is my belief that our love for the setting and the stories is both a great and perverse thing; with all the different interpretations and points of views running through the EU medias, is it really surprising that conflicts arise? To the best of my knowledge it was never once mentioned that every bits and pieces of the EU was supposed to make a cohesive collective whole. Now, don't get me wrong, it is what I would want, what I always wanted since I was a little boy; it's just not the way it went. It is the personal meaning that we attribute to SW that makes it special and it is also the reason why there will never be a grand consensus regarding the EU. There is as much different interpretations of what constitutes the proper way Star Wars should be ordered than there are fans. All in all Star Wars as a whole is just like a tapestry, it is woven by many people that imprint their own vision on it, the threads that make it are not all of the same fabric and the images on it's surface are always a reflection of someone else's interpretation of a legend. It is a beautiful work of art but it is not a HD picture.

If it's hard then it's worth doing.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind some G-canon (D-canon?) housecleaning in the EU - if it's done well. There are a few stories that are superb on their own merits, but many others that objectively aren't great.
