Nothing personal, RG.
By now, I know better than to take this board personally, but I do appreciate every effort (such as this one on your part) to keep the discourse civil.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

We're not assessing anything.... ...people to consider that JB has been very good at drafting for a long time. Then those people are assessing. So am I. Let's use the Strangelove(TM) test. This test asks, in a re-draft, using what you know today (and therefore, yes, hindsight), would the player dra...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Drafting is an inexact science. Even the best GMs with the best scouting staff will make these mistakes again and again. But they will also make "genius" picks again and again. You can assess all you want. You can decry that you picked the tortoise but give it time. Maybe the tortoise will never ge...

Canucks acquire Ryan Spooner from EDM for Sam Gagne JIm Benning is great at drafting !! You build through the draft.

Re: LOL

You just described poster Y2K/Pauser! He has, in fact railed against every GM in Canuck history! The Pause has never had anything good to say about anything Canuck until he/she/it left the organization. I don't know this poster, but the fact is, no GM in Canucks history has built a Stanley Cup winn...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Canucks acquire Ryan Spooner from EDM for Sam Gagne By trading Gag from TORONTO MARLIES to Edmonton, he makes both the Marlies and the Oilers worse! Marlies are only a couple of points behind the Comets with a game in hand. Now Jimbo steals one of their top players. Depleted Comets will acquire ano...

Re: LOL

But what’s even more gut busting is that they are all circling around Markstrom (a Gillis player) calling him the MVP of the year. The GillisBros are grasping at straws holding on for dear life. Are these people the source of your otherwise inexplicable position that any criticism of Benning is an ...

But if it was [Puljujarvi] and a cap dump for say Goldie, Sutter/Grand.. and a mid tier prospect/pick, I might be interested in that.
I would have to conceal my eagerness so that Edmonton did not increase the price.

Re: The "ALL HOCKEY / NO BS" hockey talk thread

The biggest issue is the local media and their followers thinks you can fix a disaster like the Canucks were over night. Patience grasshopper The only thing I have ever complained about with respect to timeline is that none has ever been offered. I fully expected it to take a while to re-build, whi...

Nobody knows how far EP can take the team. Hes definitely the engine that could land at minimum a playoff spot...maybe farther. Hes in the crosby mcdavid class of elite player that can carry a team all the way if the stars align just so. You build championship teams with pieces like this Agreed, bu...

Re: What to do with Alex Edler ?

I can see Tanev being traded though as i bet that little geek in toronto will pony up if benning can bend him over far enough...Liljigren and their 1st? If Benning gets that for Tanev, I'd have to take a look at boarding the genius train myself. (I could say all the previous problems were before he...

Sutter is who we should be talking about trading
I agree. (I'm always a little freaked out when that happens.)

I mention it to show that I am not reflexively anti-Dude.
