Re: Canucks Young Guns

He keeps bringing it up though. Must know something that he doesn't want to be public. Trymankin wants to return but has always said he won’t get serious about it until his KHL contract is up. Benning and his agent have kept in contact. But.....the KHL changed its rules around letting a player go w...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

. Jim Benning on TSN 1040am radio; https://www.tsn.ca/radio/vancouver-1040/sekeres-price-august-22-hour-2-1.1354765 This really is the best interview he has given in the last 2 days. His answers are definitive and not hesitant. All pertinent topics are covered and it sounds like Jimbo got some slee...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

The NHL and the Caps are investigating. His IIHF suspension does not affect his stat...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I believe two forwards will get traded up front by October, there's way too many contracts & I don't think management wants to send a couple expensive contracts to Utica except maybe Eriksson unless he goes on coke and rips up the scene. It would be great if we could get rid of Spooner and Ericksso...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Over in the KHL - Tryamkin is learning to use his size effectively and is positionally sound as he matures. I'd say he'd be a rock solid defensive dman in the NHL. The type that would thrive in the nasty playoffs atmosphere - especially now that we have other scrappy players so he isn't the only "t...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

The cap isn't the problem. The term isn't the problem. In fact the Canucks love a 4 year deal. The problem is the structure. They don't want to have to qualify him in 4 years for 10 million. For sure Id bet they'd love closer to 6 per but I think they'd bite at 7 if they get the right structure. So ...

Jesse Puljujarvi thinks he should be a top 6 on any team

wow


Do you buy low?
I’d take a gamble. I think he could be a power forward in this league. Two bad hips and playing for Edmonton? Trade Goldobin straight up.

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

So Benning does get his extra 3 years. I’m glad. I know Blob will survive this too. :mrgreen: As for lines, the biggest problem , IMHO, we had during the WCE days was lack of a consistent second line. Green has the tools now to create two excellent top lines. I don’t really care who is on what line ...

Re: Allstar Weekend replaced by shortened World Cup?

In the negotiations between the NHL and the NHLPA, the suggestion has come up to replace the Allstar Weekend with a shortened format World Cup, that would be played in just one week. OK, I'm listening.... :look: Since many of the best cannot participate in the World Championship and the NHL despica...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

I’m reading that Benning’s extension is 3 years, adding this year, that gives him four more years, theoretically, at the helm. The contract extension is supposed to be announced sometime next week. This week I guess since it’s Sunday. Anyway, no confirmation yet so this could be fake news. :mrgreen...
