Re: 2019 offseason

The best championship teams move parts around their core, where Benning can now just start! After he did the hard work of living through the NMC/NTC vets / Sedins. Let Benning have his years to command around his new core he drafted (Elias Pettersson, Brock Boeser and Quinn Hughes, Horvat the last ...

Don Sweeney (Bruins), Don Waddell (Hurricanes) and Doug Armstrong (Blues)
nominated for GM of the year.

all made a lot of trades, some of them involving highly drafted players I might add.
Big difference is the players they got back were actually good.

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

Well I think the point is that Benning has done a decent job keeping picks, even though he has trade a slew he has recovered a slew. Sure it could be better but it’s not as dire as some would suggest. Yes, the NHL gifted us a 2nd. Let’s not count that though. He’s remained around average when it co...

^ Interesting!

So years later one could say...I took a few minor liberties for clarity’s sake
:lol: you sure did!

Of all the players and assets listed, the organization came out with Sutter, Pearson and Lockwood. For a "rebuilding" team, that's awful.

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

It’s like trading a rib eye and baked potatoe for a three day old tuna sandwich. You then moved the tuna sando for a Swanson frozen meal Yeah it's only the worst example of the declining returns Benning seems to muster. Garrison+7th -> 2nd -> Vey -> Nothing Mallet+3rd -> Pedan -> +4th -> Pouliot ->...

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

Turning McCann+33 Overall into Tanner Pearson is not great asset management for a rebuilding team. ? May 2016: The Vancouver Canucks traded Jared McCann, a second round draft pick in 2016 and a fourth round draft pick in 2016 to the Florida Panthers for Erik Gudbranson and a fifth round draft pick ...

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

McCaan was rushed into the NHL we all know that. He had a cocky little boy entitlement attitude to go along with his immaturity. Had we left him a year longer in junior he may have been a great surprise for us. We were so desperate for some exciting young players both he and Virtanen were rushed. 1...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Satiar: NHL teams can't walk away from arbitration awards that are less than $4.39M, which could make the Canucks think twice about going down that road with Hutton. Chance he's not qualified if Van doesn't work out a trade or extension beforehand 4x4 ish? or trade him + a forward for a top 6 winge...

Re: 2019 UFA

People always go nuts on UFA day... but I think if we can avoid going crazy for the high-end guys, there could be some value in the secondary market. The big worry in my mind is that Benning gives a secondary guy top-tier money. The secondary market is just as bad as the high end market when it com...
